The public is invited to attend A Boy, A Girl, and A Virus, featuring Shawn, a hemophiliac who contracted HIV after receiving HIV positive blood in a blood transfusion at age seven and Gwenn, an HIV activist. Shawn and Gwenn fell in love and use their relationship as a platform to address the issues of safer sex, intimacy, communication between partners and the medical realities of HIV in a relaxed and funny manner.
