How Gay Celebrities with Tattoos Can Avoid Getting AIDS
Posted On July 16, 2021
Gay celebrities with tattoos are able to avoid getting AIDS, a study has found.
But the research also showed that they often had to be careful about not getting infected, with one woman telling Reuters she was given the HIV test while wearing a tattoo of a penis and that the doctor said the tattoo had to go.
The study was carried out in the United States by researchers from the University of California, San Francisco and the University in California, Los Angeles, who compared HIV testing results from gay and straight celebrities.
They looked at HIV testing from more than 4,000 people, including those who had been diagnosed with HIV, but not gay or bisexual people.
They also examined how many people tested positive for HIV, and how many HIV positive people were HIV-negative.
They found that, among gay and bisexual men, the HIV prevalence rate was higher among those with tattoos than among the general population.
They also found that people with tattoos were more likely to have had unprotected sex.
The researchers found that while there were some limitations in the study, the data suggests that people who have tattoos can be more at risk of contracting HIV than people who don’t.
They wrote that the research did not consider HIV status and how HIV was contracted, but the results suggest that the risk of HIV transmission to gay and bi men is not as high as people have assumed.
The University of Sydney’s Professor Brian Cox, who led the research, said the study was interesting but limited.
“This is a really good example of the difficulties in trying to look at this as a general health risk, and to see whether there is any benefit,” he said.
“What’s interesting is that these people did not get HIV.
So, you know, you’re saying, ‘Hey, they didn’t get HIV but they might have had sex, so we shouldn’t be concerned about them’.”
I think it’s really important to look into the possibility of a health benefit, but it’s not clear that there is one.
“The researchers said they would like to expand the study to include more people who were diagnosed with AIDS and tested positive.
However, the study is limited because there are too few people who test positive for the virus.
Gay rights activist and health campaigner Tom Elliott told Reuters the research was “an enormous wake-up call”.”
They are still stigmatising and putting people off from getting tested,” he told the news agency.”
There’s a huge number of people who do not test positive, so that is something to keep in mind.
