Would you hug a person who is HIV positive?

That’s the question Christian Vincent, an HIV+ gay man, asked the public on a windy day last week in Valletta, Malta.

The Danish activist wanted to challenge stereotypes and stigma surrounding the virus in Malta – and the responses he got from the public ranged from heartwarming to heartbreaking.

Watch the video below to see how people reacted to an HIV+ man asking for human connection.

This social experiment was filmed in collaboration with Christian Vincent and ARC – Allied Rainbow Communities.

Tag someone who would have given Christian a hug!
