 Hepatitis B Carrier Exchanges Roses For Kisses

A Chinese woman hit upon a novel idea to raise awareness about the hepatitis B virus carriers.

Zhang Wen, dressed in a low-backed wedding dress, stood at Guanggu Square in Wuhan, the capital city of Hubei province, on January 3.

Shivering in the cold wind, she held 10 roses and asked for kisses from male passers-by, with a friend standing nearby holding a board saying, 'Kiss me for a rose in exchange'.

It also said 'I'm an HBV (hepatitis B virus) carrier, I also long for love'.

According to Changjiang Times, Wen is 30 and unmarried. Ten roses were handed out within one hour in exchange for kisses, China Daily reported.

She also got hugs from passers-by who were moved by her courage and honesty.

The event was to raise awareness about the misunderstanding and discrimination against HBV carriers and letting people know that HBV is not so horrible.
