Wilbur, a straight, black male with HIV in Youngstown, reclines in his living room. His face is covered with a Halloween mask to hide his identity. Although he said he hasn't experienced much discrimination, he is careful about disclosing. "Years ago, a friend of our family had cancer. When we went over there, we were told to cover the toilet seat. That's how HIV is perceived now," he said.
