A British lawmaker revealed in Parliament on Thursday that he is HIV-positive.
Lloyd Russell-Moyle, a member of Parliament for the opposition Labour Party, is believed to be the only sitting lawmaker in the House of Commons to have disclosed that he has the virus.
Next year, I'll be marking an anniversary of my own: 10 years since I became HIV-positive," the 32-year-old told the lower house. "It's been a long journey -- from the fear to acceptance and, from today, advocacy, knowing my treatment keeps me healthy and that it protects any partner I have."
Taking medication for a number of years has made him "what the [National Health Service] calls HIV-positive 'undetectable,' " he said.
Russell-Moyle, who was elected in 2017, explained that means he does not get sick and "can't transmit HIV to someone else."

Dr. Irving Pascal shared a few wise words with the general public saying that information is very vital in ones decision making.
He says a lot of the negative banter towards kaya is really based on lack of information. He says that because of this, proper information should be made public on the subject, and help aid in its reformation.
Dr. Pascal shared medical and historical evidence which paints a clear picture as to biological connection between cannabinoid and the human nervous system as it relates to mental health.
He says that modern information disproves many of the superstition attributed to kaya, which really kicked off from 1992 and information before then was more speculation than fact.
Pascal further elaborated that the medical information that is now revealing itself is beginning to paint a different picture, compared to the images once painted in the public minds.
