What If Vito Russo Ran For President? Comments (0)

Fascinating trailer after the jump for Fathers, a proposed short that imagines a world without HIV in which gay men were not decimated in the '80s, and in which we have not only a gay president but gay elders like Keith Haring, 59; Rock Hudson, 91; and Freddie Mercury, 70.

From a press release:

Leo Herrera, Mexican gay artist/advocate announced his latest work “Fathers,” a short film and exhibit slated for release in 2017 by kicking off fundraising efforts with the launch of the trailer for the film.

The 2-minute trailer brings awareness to World AIDS Day, gives the history of AIDS, pays tribute to many famous artists/activists and gives the world a taste of a film that Herrera hopes to fund through community support via tax deductible donations, with a portion of the proceeds supporting the GLBT Historical Society.

“What if Vito Russo ran for President? What if Mapplethorpe got into a Twitter feud with a Kardashian? What would David Wojnarowicz do about the gay executions in the Middle East? With Fathers, these are the questions I will explore with integrity, humor and history,” explained Herrera. “The tools we now have to combat HIV will give us the privilege of keeping our queer artists, but the injustices of AIDS should always live in our collective memory and more importantly in our imagination. It's the only way that we can find creative cures to the damage it caused to our culture and harness the power it gave our community to join against political forces that threatened our lives, now more than ever.”

The final project will be a “faux” documentary that Herrera describes as “HBO’s Looking meets Man in High Castle meets Beyonce’s Lemonade.” It will be produced along a team of collaborators, historians from the GLBT Historical Society, survivors, friends, lovers and family of the men featured. It will be filmed in San Francisco, New Orleans and New York. To research the political storylines for Fathers, Herrera worked on a New York art collective with Act-Up legend Avram Finkelstein (of Silence=Death campaign), and then as a campaign manager to successfully elect an LGBT activist to public office in San Francisco.

World AIDS Day Today: Riskiest Places For HIV Comments (0)

The riskiest places in the U.S. when it comes to HIV — an interesting map. I'm willing to bet most would think California would have been riskier than Texas or Florida.

You can get HIV anywhere, depending on what you're doing, with whom you're doing it, if you're on PrEP, if you're using condoms and pure luck, but the map is nonetheless a sobering reminder of that fact:

The Top 10 Riskiest Cities for HIV
(Rank - City - New Diagnoses per 100,000) 

  1. Baton Rouge, LA - 44.7
  2. Miami - 42.8
  3. New Orleans - 36.9
  4. Jackson, MS - 32.2
  5. Orlando, FL - 28.8
  6. Memphis, TN - 27.6
  7. Atlanta - 25.9
  8. Columbia, SC - 25.6
  9. Jacksonville, FL - 25.1
  10. Baltimore - 24.3
