"Despite there being zero risk of HIV transmission through casual contact, researchers found that 28% of HIV-negative millennials surveyed said they still avoided hugging, talking to, or being friends with someone who was HIV-positive, while 30% said they would would prefer not to interact in any way whatsoever with someone who was poz."

"Unsurprisingly, 76% of respondents living with HIV said they would be hesitant to share their status for fear of being judged, while 90% said they have avoided sharing their status for fear of losing friends or family, or experiencing mental, physical, or emotional abuse."

Scientists have carried out the biggest ever study on transgender children—here's what they found

"The study provides further timely evidence that a child's gender is unlikely to be determined by how parents respond: there is something that comes 'from within', and that the child discovers despite having being encouraged otherwise. The child will follow this internal clue and gravitate towards toys plays and peers that are congruent with the inner gender in the culture of belonging. Parents and families cannot instigate such process: they can facilitate it or impede it."

Researchers spoke to transgender children across North America for their study.

Dead Black Boy Magic: How mental health stigmas compound with anti-queerness to kill our children - RaceBaitr

“Within a Black, queer body my existence holds an assortment of stigmas that are projected onto me by the world. I carry a combination of marginal identities that hold an enduring need for self-sufficiency and suffering. When you add mental illness to these strata, it feels like just a further othering; a third marginal experience that you must now also contend with, another sheet to add to your wrongness.”

- Zanta Nkumane

I carry a combination of marginal identities that hold an enduring need for self-sufficiency and suffering.
