I never even thought of acting on it. In the rural town where I lived, there were no openly gay people or gay people my age.

In addition, people over fifty have more illnesses, ailments, and symptoms of aging that mask HIV symptoms. AIDS-related dementia can be attributed to Alzheimer’s; fatigue and weight loss can be dismissed as part of the “normal” aging process. HIV prevention education campaigns never show older faces, making adults over fifty “an invisible at-risk population” for AIDS, says the CDC.
