Last year, the CDC officially announced that men who are HIV-positive and are undetectable are incapable of transmitting the disease to other people.
Since then, the term "undetectable = untransmittable" has popped up all over the internet and on multiple HIV-awareness campaigns.
That said, there’s still a toxic atmosphere around dating for men living with HIV. This was proven just a couple days ago when Instinct shared the story of one man who tweeted screenshots of the abuse and hate he gets on dating apps like Grindr.
In order to combat all that hate, an HIV awareness organization from New Zealand called the New Zealand AIDS foundation has worked to create a one minute advertisement sharing the undetectable = untransmittable fact.
In the video below, which is a part of the Ending HIV campaign, two men arrive at a home while riding the back of a taxi.
Before they exit the car, one man says he would like to talk. The other wonders what the conversation could be about and has an interesting response when he finds out its about HIV statuses.
Wonder what the other date says? You’ll have to check out the video below to find out.
