I live in Manchester in the United Kingdom and have worked for a corporate company selling office space and the staff you knew I was openly gay and worked with an all female staff, I became H.I.V after leaving the company and my Boss found out through my medical records regarding my status and lost all my friends within,that was in 2004 and still no one speaks to me, I myself did not tell my bosses regarding my status as I had left their employment but they found out anyway.

I am so sorry to hear that in this day of education, that people are still so ignorant about HIV/AIDS. I remember being in third grade (over 15 years ago) and my teacher explaining that AIDS/HIV cannot be transferred through touching or breathing the same air. I also am ashamed of the management, who could condone and get involved in such inhumane actions. I would not recommend this place to anyone. I am also letting everyone I know about this in hopes that they too will protest.

It is Amazing, to see such behavior, but it is true, after learning about my status, people did not want to be in an elevator, for fear of breathing the same "Air" I now ride the elevator alone... Education is the only thing that can stop this and if it does not happen soon, isolationists will push for a "Round up" of positive people so they can "live together and not risk the lives of everyone else" does that sound insane, sure, but this is what will happen if we do nothing at all. but wait..

Am HIV+ and was a pharmacy manager with Walmart and told my district manager that I was probably positive. Within 2 days they had our store do 2 blood born pathogen modules in the HR room. Calls to other local stores showed that these stores had no required modules at that time. Then came the harrasement within the pharmacy and validated by two hand written letters by fellow pharmacy staff which HR ignored. Finally had to leave due to the harrasment and to protect my health. Would NEVER divulge!
