Looking for a single word, an adjective, that means "HIV-positive" or "having AIDS".
I am especially looking for slang/informal equivalents, but open to all suggestions.
I am translating a text that was written when much less was known about the disease, so the lines were blurrier. The text is also about a very marginalized community, where you went from being HIV-positive to having AIDS much faster than in, say, the US or much of Europe -- the blurriness of the language also reflects that.
I should also mention that words I'm translating ("sidada" and "sidosa") are derived from the acronym "SIDA" (AIDS) but often were used by this community to mean HIV-positive.
To a certain extent, I am looking for pejorative terms, but pejorative in the sense that "queer" was pejorative and then taken back through positive usage by the community itself.
