An advert that appeared on Grindr and Gaydar and other dating sites and apps over the weekend has been removed following protests on Facebook and via Twitter.
The advert, under the heading ‘Got the cool gene?’, promoted a test that could determine whether an individual had a genetic mutation which makes HIV infection less likely. Matthew Hodson, of the gay men’s health charity GMFA, was one of many who protested. Hodson commented, “With thousands of UK gay men becoming infected with HIV each year, it seems particularly irresponsible to be suggesting to gay men that they may be immune.”
