He has AIDS, we love him, 1989

Not unlike the disease itself, people with AIDS faced powerful stigmas that transcended racial boundaries. This poster reminded African American communities that it was and is okay to interact with, hug, and love people with AIDS. Through the voices of children and loving families, the poster helps to erode the myths and fears associated with people with AIDS.
