Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle Reveals He Is HIV Positive

Russell-Moyle, the MP for Brighton Kemptown since the 2017 election, told the Commons he had been HIV positive for 10 years, since he was 22.

The Cayman Islands Red Cross also offers education on sex, sexuality, HIV testing and counselling, as well as condom distribution.
