I'd sure like to know if the man who got infected from this guy was made aware of his status. If he was not informed, I would say that covers the "intent" question.

Figures the gay rights organization is defending this creep. Gays will defend, support, cheat and lie for other gays no matter what heinous acts they've committed.

I have no sympathy for anyone who knowingly puts others at risk for contracting a disease. This guy had an obligation to tell his potential sex partner that he was HIV positive even before their first kiss.

The first rule of safe sex is that YOU are responsible for protecting your own health. They used a condom, which clearly indicates that transmission wasn`t the intent or even desired. This is clearly a use of the law to browbwat AIDS patients. Being HIV+ doesn't require celebacy.

Yes it does. Unless the creep is married and monogamous.

No more than any other person with an STD. You cannot legally demand celibacy or monogamy.

We don't really have a defined legal concept for what happened.

Reckless Endangerment comes closest.
