[Video] Man: Touch Me. I am HIV Positive.

Janne from Finland wondered if HIV stigma would keep people to touch him?  What happens brings tears to his eyes.

A man stood in the middle of a city in Finland, Helsinki, and wanted those walking by to touch him after they read the sign beside him announcing, “I’m HIV Positive. Touch me.”


According to The Independent,

“Janne offered his ‘thanks’ to those who touched him: “Kiitos”.

He was overwhelmed by the support, and began to cry.”
