You know Jonathan Van Ness (or “JVN”) as the sassiest, silliest groomer on Netflix’s “Queer Eye.” After you read his memoir “Over the Top” (HarperOne) out Sept. 24, you’re going to appreciate and understand his gutsy glam even more.

But there are two key elements to Van Ness’ life that stand out the most.

Van Ness feels it’s more important than ever to speak about these issues because it disproportionately affects the LGBTQ+ community.

Though the Trump administration has indeed supported grants to help end the HIV epidemic, it’s been criticized by LGBTQ advocates for failing to meaningfully protect the community.

The Trump administration included $291 million in its annual budget for efforts to end the U.S. HIV epidemic. However, HIV experts pointed out other points in the budget could be detrimental to curbing the spread of the virus around the world, specifically citing a $1.35 billion cut in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, according to Kaiser Health News.
