Mykki Blanco has been living with HIV for five years and her new video for “Hideaway” discusses the stigmatization HIV+ people continue to face, particularly in romantic partnerships. The clip was directed by Daisy Zhou, and features Blanco and friends dressing up and hanging out on set. Blanco’s voiceover opens the video, which has been released today in honor of National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day (the first annual observance day designated to recognize the impact HIV/AIDS has had on young people). Watch Blanco’s “Hideaway” video below.
