Despite the Egyptian government’s ongoing wave of arrests of LGBT Egyptians, the LGBTIQ community continues to wage war against AIDS.

Bedayaa, an advocacy organization for LGBTIQ people in the Nile Valley area of Egypt and Sudan, has published an informative video for people who discover they are HIV-positive.

Titled “It Is Not the End of the World,” the video shows the perceptions of a person when he first learns that he is infected with HIV and how he moves on from there.

“The video shows the wrong perceptions of a person when he knows that he is infected with HIV and how he overcomes these perceptions,” says Noor Sultan, co-founder and executive director of Bedaya. You can watch the video here or by clicking the image above:
