Empire star Jussie Smollett gets serious about being Black and gay in a post-Trump world and talks about HIV testing, safer sex, treatment, and finding a cure. Smollet was interviewed by his pal, comedian Sampson McCormick, another gay performer who uses his art and audience to talk about the need for HIV testing and stigma reduction. There are more rabble rousers living with HIV in this issue: media personality and artist Rae Lewis-Thornton, Black Lives Matter activist Ashton Woods & the star of Broadway's Hamilton, Javier Munoz. Plus: NIH announces people who are undetectable on treatment cannot transmit HIV to anyone else.
