Coinciding with Life Ball in Vienna, Vangardist Magazine released a special edition of their publication to fight the stigma surrounding HIV. The editors wanted to make a direct statement and place the issue in the reader's hands.
Every line, word and picture of the edition is printed with the cause of the stigma itself—HIV+ blood, taken from 3 donors with a different background, whose stories are told online and in the magazine.
By further putting the issue into a sealed wrapper, people were confronted with an additional dilemma—break the seal and break the stigma, or ignore the issue.
