World AIDS Day 2012 “He Doesn’t Love Me” Photography Exhibition

 

 

Imagine that you or your partner is infected by HIV, what will be the determining factor of your relationship? Love? Or the identity of people living with HIV (PLHIV)? 

 AIDS has always been a challenge to love and relationships. HIV/AIDS is now a chronic disease and, with the proper medication, PLHIV can have their own career, friends, family and relationships. However, the stigma attached to HIV has created barriers to communication between PLHIV and others. 

 We invited local writer Byran Yip Zhi Wei to contribute a love story of a gay couple, titled “He Doesn’t Love Me”, with photography by Tai Dai Ren Studio from the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University, to explore how people living with HIV and their HIV negative partners can overcome this stigma. 

 When Clint, HIV positive, meets Stan, HIV negative, will HIV become a wall between them?
