Entry Description

In modern context, many of us have become the martyrs of the blindness that AIDS patients should be stigmatized. The sure thing is that we suffered from the backfire of the discrimination, the isolation, and the stigma that we put on AIDS positives. The book questions such discrimination and harbingers the outcome that all of us will be facing. Each page is embedded with actual and printed rose thorns, viewers would experience a quick prick while reading the content collected from the confessions of AIDS patients. Real blood is printed on each page to intensify the reading experience.
