The centers for disease control indicate that more than 1 million people in the US live with HIV. Its stigma can cause divisions in the community, families and at places of employment. According to the National Coalition for the Homeless report, as many as 20% of those with the disease wind up on the streets. Jack Hilason, a person living with AIDS, talks about a new tattoo, resembling the biohazard sign, that some of people with AIDS are getting to show that they have it.
