Child of God by Kawika

About This Video

Kawika is a Fijian gay man living with HIV who struggles to reconcile himself with his family and his faith. His story is compassionate and hopeful and is, in itself, an act of reclaiming much of what he thought he lost.

What does this video tell us about stigma?
How does shame prevent people from getting the support they need? Kawika wants support from his family, but he is afraid that they will reject him. Showing that you are supportive can help people living with HIV stay in care.
