HRC Statement on Hillary Clinton’s Meeting Today With HIV and AIDS Activists

by Liz Halloran May 12, 2016

Today, following Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s meeting in New York City with 20 leading HIV and AIDS activists, the Human Rights Campaign released the following statements:

“It is essential that our next President be an outspoken champion for ending the HIV and AIDS epidemic,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Secretary Clinton’s meeting today with advocates underscores her commitment to do everything she can to help people living with and affected by HIV, and to work with us to end the epidemic and the continued stigma around HIV.”

"As a young, Black gay man, I want to underscore the importance of our elected officials truly understanding the unique challenges facing LGBT people, and today’s conversation with Secretary Clinton was a welcome opportunity,” said Noël Gordon Jr., Senior Program Specialist for HIV Prevention and Health Equality at the HRC Foundation. “When one in two Black gay men in America will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, and where the rate of HIV among transgender women is shockingly high, we must confront the ways stigma and discrimination keep LGBT people from getting tested or treated for HIV. I believe we will have a full partner in our work if Secretary Clinton is in the White House.”
