AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is the name used to describe a number of potentially life-threatening infections and illnesses that happen when your immune system has been severely damaged by the HIV virus. During the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, primarily gay men were persecuted in connection with the illness, as it was perceived that only gay men could contract HIV. However, nowadays, for the first time, more heterosexual people are HIV positive than Queer people. And statistically over 50 per cent of all adults living with HIV currently identify as women.
