A Finnish man with HIV has become an internet star after he stood in a public square asking people to touch him. Janne Antin wrote a sign that read: 'I am HIV positive, touch me!' and then stood in the middle of a busy square with his eyes closed and arms outstretched.
The clip has since been viewed more than five million times on YouTube.
Janne embarked on the project in the hope of showing people what it is like to live with HIV-related stigma. By the end of the afternoon, he is so touched by the responses from passers-by that he breaks down in tears.
