British lawmaker reveals to parliament he is HIV positive

A British lawmaker revealed he was HIV positive during an emotional speech to parliament to mark the upcoming World AIDS day.

Lloyd Russell-Moyle told his fellow lawmakers that he had been diagnosed HIV positive when he was aged 22.

He said he had decided to speak out to help others to seek treatment, fight the stigma surrounding the disease and because tomorrow would mark the 30th anniversary of World AIDS day.

Russell-Moyle is the second British Member of Parliament to have been diagnosed with HIV.

Chris Smith, a former Labour government minister who was the first openly gay British lawmaker, disclosed he was HIV positive in 2005.
