“We have to end the stigma around STIs and around living with HIV, we have come such a long way in the medical community,” Van Ness said. “There’s just no reason with what we know and the medical advances that we’ve had in the last 20 years for anyone to be contracting HIV now.”

Van Ness also talked to Kimmel about his meeting with U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and his advocacy for access to medication preventing the spread of HIV.

“That’s one thing I was talking to Nancy Pelosi about, which was the PrEP access and coverage and the Equality Act,” he said. PrEP, or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, is a proven HIV prevention drug.

After Kimmel noted that experience must have been “pretty crazy,” Van Ness said, “Yeah, it is crazy but I think what’s also crazy is the lack of attention to living with HIV/AIDS in America right now. So I’m very happy that Speaker Pelosi took that time to talk to me and, really honeys, let’s talk more about it.”
