The Face of HIV Is the Human Face

May 18, 2012

This Saturday, LOGO TV will air "Positive Youth," a documentary that looks at HIV/AIDS through the experiences of four young people in four US localities. The individuals -- a woman, 18, in a poor farm town; a man, 25, in a major city; an African American, 23; and a performer, 27 -- were selected to represent four different situations of people living with HIV. "We made this documentary to educate those who know little of HIV, shed light on the risk of HIV infection among today's youth, give hope to people living with HIV, and let them know that they are not alone," said Charles David, a TV personality known for his work on E! and the Travel Channel. The film airs at 8 p.m. on LOGO TV.
