A.I.D.S.C.R.E.A.M.

First of three films in the Jerry Tartaglia’ HIV/AIDS Trilogy, this short film is one of the earliest expressions of personal rage at the American response to the epidemic. As the virus has become a convenient excuse to desexualize gay men and thereby destroy gay liberation, it expresses queer anger and rage at the no-win constructs of straight culture's refusal to acknowledge the political impact of the disease.
