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.

Here's a novel idea — visit a sex club, but don't have sex. Instead, talk about all the great memories of having sex in another sex club decades previously.

This is right up my alley.

6-PACK — Grinding Prince Charming + Orlando Pride + Bannon Raised Up + Trump's Anti-Gay Minions + Maddow On Pence's Anti-Gay Moves + History: The Gay Marine Who Saved Ford! Comments (0)
 

Reunion Recap.. I just have to get this off my chest. Since the word "authentic" was used so many times on the show Finding Prince Charming by that fraud of a bachelor. I think it's time that someone takes heed to their own advice. How about being authentic that you're still hooking. It's been proven many times that you are. Also branding yourself as an "interior designer" when we all know that is a completely, and poorly, manufactured FAKE business, I mean, your portfolio speaks for itself. How about coming clean that you embezzled over $40K from the Atlanta rainbow crosswalks project. I just happen to be friends with some of the donors. They want their money back! Also, stealing Rolex's off the nightstand of your hookups. How about being authentic about the fact that you have physically abused your partners in every relationship that you have had, including and not limited to launching blunt objects at their head, like a computer. How about being authentic about the fact that you actively pursued me, Brandon, Eric and Paul right after the show wrapped. How about being authentic about seeing your Johns just before and AFTER the show finalized shooting. Oh, and last but definitely not least, how about that time you pursued me a DAY after you were with Eric to try and hook up with me in Chicago during market days after saying you were not with anyone. Just to be very clear, none of us knew about Roberts past and consequently, his present about being a rent boy. Here's a lovely pic of Robert and I at Market Days in Chicago. For the record, he tried to sleep with me. But even then, without knowing what I know now, I wouldn't go near that science experiment. And by science experiment I'm talking about his penis. I insisted that we should just cuddle. Stop LYING! Peace out you sociopathic ho! #realtalk #thetruth #exposed
