The first of two films that I Produced for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation. Victor and Lily are two young, gay men living in Kisumu, Kenya - where it is still illegal to engage in a homosexual relationship. Appalled and saddened by the lack of support and treatment for young men and women with HIV, they decided to set up their own, grassroots organisation. They founded MAAYGO, (Men Against AIDS Youth Group) and started organising various education sessions and HIV testing & counselling. Last year MTV awarded them a seed grant so they could continue their work. Here we see just how much difference it has made and how many lives they are helping.
