  •  Sigh. From the report: (1+ / 0-)

    The largest increase was reported in instances of HIV related bias, which increased from 1.82% in 2012 to 4.87% in 2013.
    But some of this may be due to improved reporting and the increasing willingness of poz people to disclose their HIV status to law enforcement.

    All I can say is that I'm glad I'm a gay man living in San Francisco.  While there's plenty of HIV stigma among gay men, at least here a poz guy is less likely to be attacked when he reveals his status.  I've had a lot of negative reactions to my disclosure, but violence has never been part of them.
