Four-time Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis says a cure is the “true goal” of AIDS research.

In his 1995 memoir Breaking the Surface, Louganis came out as a gay man living with HIV.

On Tuesday, HBO will premiere Back on Board: Greg Louganis. The documentary from openly gay director Cheryl Furjanic follows Louganis, 55, as he returns to diving to mentor the Olympic team.

In an interview with GLAAD All Access to promote the film, Louganis talked about living with HIV.

“I never dreamed that I would live this long, period,” Louganis said. “But, you know, a cure that's the true goal. Are we going to find a cure?”

“The good news is, there's medications out there. But the bad news is a lot of young people think that it's a manageable disease. Yeah, there's treatment options, and those treatment options are much more palatable than what they used to be. But I wouldn't wish my drug regimen on anyone,” he added.
