Sask. government apologizes for World AIDS Day post that appears to depict gay couple


The Government of Saskatchewan has apologized for a social media post that appeared to depict a gay couple on World AIDS Day. The post shows a photo of two men posing with each other and a quote “HIV is on the rise in Saskatchewan” appears above them. The post was shared on the government’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts. The post was deleted by Wednesday morning, and an apology issued. “Yesterday in marking World AIDS Day, Government of Saskatchewan social media pages used a photo that stigmatized HIV/AIDS and those that live with the disease,” the government said in a statement. “The photo has been deleted, and we unreservedly apologize.”
