Would you kiss this sexy tv-presenter?

I like well made advocacy videos – and the one that British Red Cross released today definitely falls into this category. It features Konnie Huq, a well know and very sexy tv-presenter (well known in the UK). The question is: “Would you still want to kiss her, if she was HIV positive?”

The reason this video was made is a survey that British Red Cross commissioned of 16-25-year-olds in the UK. The result:

Even though  85 per cent know you cannot catch HIV from a kiss, 69 per cent of respondents said they wouldn’t kiss someone with HIV.

Or as British Red Cross puts it: “There is safety. And then there is stigma.”

What are your thoughts – both on the campaign and on the topic? Please leave a  comment!
