Christian Edward Owens, a gay, white HIV+ male from Warren blocks his face with a box of Wheat Thins on his way out of a Giant Eagle Supermarket. Chris said he has moved all over the country because disclosing his status continually leaves him ostracized wherever he is living.
"People don't know how big the HIV population is. If you look around the grocery there's someone with HIV. We eat food...we're just like you," he said.
