Outing people with regards to their right to privacy and autonomy is criminal. Health is a private matter. Writing about someone’s HIV status without their explicit and fully informed consent, especially after they died - it’s simply heinous.

@Dale Smith I wouldn’t read anything untoward into the disease progress and the possibility of other factors. It’s a biostatistical reality that the great (most) percentage of us diagnosed with HIV, on antiretroviral medications and with good adherence will live to old age. The biostatistical reality is that a small number (small percentage) of people who do all of the things that current research says we should do but do succumb to the disease.

Call me out of the loop, but I had grown accustomed to believing that thanks to the sophistication and effectiveness of HIV medications, AIDS-related deaths were a thing of the past. My doctor told me, that barring any extraordinary events, I could expect to die of old age or being hit by a bus. As long as I remain on an effective drug regimen HIV /AIDS would not kill me. Is there more to Antron's story than the article that is so eager to hold him up as having died from AIDS is saying?
