With Ms. Chanel Haley, we discussed the transgender community defining what it means to be transgender. There was a statistical presentation that had shown that 74% of Georgians support state protections of LGBTQ people from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations. Roughly 52-56% of Georgians also strongly support 78% of voters under the age of 36. Issues pertaining to HIV in 2019 include :
1)HIV Criminalization Reform and Syringe Access
2) PrEP access for minors & rural communities
3) opt-out HIV testing
4)Maternal HIV transmission
5) Improved formulary access in Medicaid.
