HIV-positive gay man on trial in Vancouver for sexual assault

"A gay man is now on trial in Vancouver for aggravated sexual assault, stemming from a 2003–2004 relationship in which he allegedly failed to disclose his HIV status to his boyfriend, with whom he had unprotected sex. The boyfriend did not contract the virus," reports Nathaniel Christopher.
