‘Shit gay guys say’ video dispels HIV myths

Following the success of viral hits Shit Girls Say, Shit Guys Say and even Shit Hungover Girls Say, gay men's health charity GMFA have made their own version to dispel myths about HIV.

'Shit gay guys say about HIV' features actors talking about some of the contradictory, or plain bizarre, things that some gay men say about HIV.
Matthew Hodson of GMFA, said: 'We’ve all heard people come out with statements about HIV that are inaccurate, misinformed or dangerously naive.

'GMFA’s website provides frank information about HIV, how it is transmitted and how gay men can protect themselves and their sexual partners.

'We hope that this video will encourage gay men to think about their own attitudes and behaviour and motivate them to find out more about HIV.'

Viewers of the video are invited to give feedback on the impact that the video had on them.

Initial findings suggest that two-thirds of viewers were inspired to think about the assumptions that they make about their sexual partner’s HIV status and a majority of viewers were moved to consider who has the responsibility for safer sex and to think about the likelihood of disclosure of HIV status.
