The issue includes some real talk from cover star Todrick Hall, Elton's Oscar party pics, Oprah's endorsement of U=U, and more.

Science versus stigma. That’s the fight we continue to struggle with when it comes to our sexual health, especially when it comes to HIV. This is exactly why we annually celebrate U=U in Plus’s May/June issue. The “undetectable equals untransmittable” movement has been going strong for eight years now and continues to gain momentum.

U=U simply means that people living with HIV who are on treatment and achieve an undetectable viral load also has a zero chance of transmitting HIV to a sexual partner, even without the use of a condom. This scientific fact has not only helped greatly reduce the spread of the virus, it also mentally, emotionally, and sexually liberated people living with HIV. Read more about the history of U=U, the trailblazing activists behind it, and what Oprah Winfrey recently had to say about it on page 22 (you can read the full mag below).

In this issue we also celebrate some of our greatest allies in the fight against HIV and its stigma — like our talented cover star, Todrick Hall. Throughout his career, Hall has consistently given back to the people and communities closest to him. Recently, the award-winning musician and choreographer supported HIV causes by headlining the Florida AIDS Walk and Music Festival in March. Read more about this and what else Todrick’s been up to in our exclusive interview on page 12.

For a little more art and culture, flip to page 24 to learn about the Getty art exhibit that focuses on blood and society’s evolving relationship with the essential fluid. To see some more great images, check out our fun pics from Sir Elton John’s annual Oscar viewing party (page 30), which brought out the stars and the big bucks. The event raised record-breaking millions this year for HIV causes.

And we continue to share the latest news and stories that affect our world, like the sudden loss of HIV activist Hydeia Broadbent (page 6) and a Drag Race star opening up about living with HIV (page 8). Also read about new breakthroughs in HIV treatment and prevention (page 28) and helpful tips on how to navigate the dating world and stay sane (page 21).

I hope in these pages you’re able to find some helpful information, positive inspiration, and perhaps a little joy.

Be well,
