Take 2: Kareem Davis & Joseph Kibler Cover PLUS Magazine Comments (0)

Kareem-Davis-Joseph-Kibler-Plus-Magazine-HIVCovers via Plus Magazine

The Prancing Elites star Kareem Davis—diagnosed as HIV positive at age 23—is on one of the March/April 2016 covers of Plus Magazine. In the feature, Kareem says this of coming out on the show:

At first I thought I would face more judgment, but I have actually had people show more respect than anything. People are definitely more excited when they see me [because] I’m an individual that shared such a profound story and I am still doing this whole jazz of the Prancing Elites while maintaining my health at the same time… I’m grateful that it went in a positive direction.

Joseph Kibler, an activist-turned-actor (Re-Casting Kyle, CSI: Cyber) who was born HIV positive, has the other cover. He says being marginalized (both as a person with disabilities and as a person with HIV) has made him a better person:

Whether or not we want to admit it, being marginalized, placed in a box where we are told what we can and can’t do, is actually the best thing that could ever happen to us. We are constantly being challenged. We have to push back and fight for every little thing we have. Every inch of success feels like yards. So if you don’t know what it’s like to be discriminated against, talked down to, been told no, then you’re missing out on the most rewarding experience of proving every single one of them wrong.

Check out the issue now.

Human Bernie Sanders Campaign Ad Martin Shkreli Continues To Be A Douche Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 12.44.50 PMVideo still via The Breakfast Club

Martin Shkreli, an unequivocal douchebag for raising prices on HIV medication and other acts, showed up to The Breakfast Club to defend his cred as a kid who earned his fortune on his own, and to explain why he paid $2 million for the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album.

Painful listening to him describe himself as a rich guy into rap before he slips and even asserts that he's in the rap business—before being checked.

Happily, he has apparently lost $40 million since he was arrested.

I don't think this appearance makes him one bit more appealing ...

Patti Davis Addresses Dad Ronald Reagan's Failure During The AIDS Crisis Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-01-31 at 8.10.13 PM

Duke Mason interviews former first daughter Patti Davis, who has an interesting perspective on her dad Ronald Reagan's reputation as the man who let AIDS run amok:

... I'm not gonna make excuses for, um, the failure of his administration to address the AIDS crisis when it was going on—I mean, it was a failure ... It hurts my heart that that, that that  happened, on so many levels. One of my father's flaws was that he delegated authority to other people, and relied on them to, uh, give him the appropriate information on things ...presidents get briefings every morning, um, they're busy, so their time watching CNN is, uh, is limited, so they do rely on people to bring them information on what was going on, and there were people around him who did not want him dealing with the AIDS crisis, and I'm not making excuses for him, I'm saying that's a flaw of his, and in this case it turned out to be a really tragic flaw.

She goes on to say he only knew what was going on once Rock Hudson died, and only then because Hudson was a friend of his.

She says her father would not have supported Donald Trump's rhetoric, and also takes time to promote her new book, The Earth Breaks in Colors.

Keep reading to watch the whole thing ...

Howard's End: A Nephew Documents His Uncle's Artistic Journey Comments (0)

Still from Uncle Howard

Fans of Madonna are just about the only people who have caught the underrated film Bloodhounds of Broadway (1989), directed by Howard Brookner. Brookner, who had made a name for himself with his William S. Burroughs doc Burroughs: The Movie (1983), wrote the fun, frothy '20s flick with Colman deKay, and wound up attracting one of the best, most diverse casts of the '80s—along with Madonna, the film features Matt Dillon, Randy Quaid, Jennifer Grey, Anita Morris, Rutger Hauer, Julie Hagerty, Dinah Manoff, Alan Ruck, Esai 12540845_756981177765264_6707135659366426462_nMorales and more.

Though the film bombed at the box office with, for the most part, with critics, it remains a pleasing piece, albeit one badly re-cut after Brookner died of AIDS.

Now playing at the Sundance Film Festival is another Brookner creation, directed by another Brookner—Howard's nephew Aaron is the man behind Uncle Howard, and (Queerty's) Jeremy Kinser turns in an insightful Q&A with the filmmaker at Sundance.org.

Madonna and Jennifer Grey perform in a still from Bloodhounds of Broadway.
