End The Travel Ban against HIV + European Union Visitors to U.S.


As noted at 247Gay:

"London’s Liberal Democrat MEP Baroness Sarah Ludford launched an online campaign this week to end the US policy of virtually refusing travel visas to people with HIV, a policy that has no public health rationale.
Currently the European Union is involved in visa negotiations with the US authorities to secure visa-free travel (visa waiver) for EU citizens from all of its 27 member states. In the US, gay rights campaigners are trying to get the ban lifted."

Sign the petition to lift the ban letting the Presidents of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the EU Council know this is discriminatory.
