When Robbie Lawlor was diagnosed with HIV at the age of 21, he wasn’t sure where to go or what to do in terms of support. He wasn’t sure how people would react and what his life would look like now. 8 years on Robbie has become an advocate for HIV healthcare in Ireland as well as revealing his status on the Late Late Show. He joins Rachel in studio to discuss the current HIV crisis in Ireland, the different kinds of stigma people with HIV suffer and how he’s become the person he needed when he was 21.
