#NationalYouthHIV&AIDSAwarenessDay: Mykki Blanco Defies Her Diagnosis in “Hideaway” Visual

Submitted by on Monday, 10 April 2017No Comment

Queer artist Mykki Blanco confronts the stigma that HIV positive people deal with in new visual Hideaway. Released in observance of National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day, in collaboration with W Magazine and amfAR, Blanco looks back on her own diagnosis five years ago, and how being HIV positive has not defined her. Watch her narrate a scene depicting herself in a toxic relationship that she can’t seem to break free from. Hideaway, from Mykki Blanco’s latest album Mykki, is out now on iTunes.
