Texas HIV-Positive Candidate for Student Body Targeted
A candidate for vice president of the student body at the University of Houston Downtown has been targeted because he is openly gay and HIV positive, the Dallas Voice reports. A flier circulated on the college campus shows a picture of Kristopher Sharp with an X over it. Above it is a headline, “Want AIDS?” Below it is a caption saying not to support his and his running mate’s “homosexual agenda.” On the back of the flier is a copy of a medical document containing his home address, phone number and HIV status. A university spokesperson said that an investigation has been launched.
