HIV remains a condition that is misunderstood and feared in modern times. How does one go on with one’s life when even his own family turn their back on him because of his condition?

Hua possess two qualities that are often misunderstood and discriminated by the public – he’s homosexual and he’s contracted with HIV. He had thus been shunned by his own family, and even needs the help from homeless shelter to get by. His only companion in his dim-lit room is a Kṣitigarbha statue, and a picture of his deceased godbrother. In a situation that appears dispairing, he still combact this prejudice in his way – he initiates “HIV Hugs” on every corner of the street. Hua, who’s also a believer of Mazu, hopes to one day be able to call to the homosexual community and walk with the Mazu Procession, one of the most important precessions in Taiwan, and help the public better understand the HIV and homosexual community.
