UCD SU President Hopes To Reduce Stigma Of Living With HIV

UCD Students’ Union (SU) President, Conor Anderson has made public his HIV positive status, in an interview with Masc on Friday. The incoming president was diagnosed with the illness at the age of 21, in 2010, during his undergraduate degree in Los Angeles, California.

“It was the spring of my junior year, and my hair started falling out,” said Anderson. “I didn’t know why, so after a long time, I finally decided to go to the campus clinic. So, they tested me for everything because they didn’t know what was going on, and that is when they found it.”
