Bill Bogan, a gay, Caucasian male, and outspoken advocate of AIDS/HIV awareness, stands near the high white fence that separates his yard from his neighbors in Struthers. Since he was diagnosed with HIV in the mid-nineties, Bill said he has come face to face with the stigma attached to the disease continually. First, when he was fired after his employer found out what his prescriptions were for and, most recently, while working in his backyard. Bill said he heard his neighbors discuss how their property values will sink as a result of his status.
"If I move, they were saying, my house would have to be burned down," Bill said.
