#HIV: CURRENT AIDS WRITING
Moderator: Ted Kerr, Visual AIDS
Panelist: Chaplain C. Jones, Jessica Max Stein, Ricky Tucker, Aldrin Valdez
When thinking about queer literature, the question is often raised, who is writing about HIV now? With a resounding fierceness, our panel responds: WE ARE!
Growing up with HIV/AIDS ever present, be it in our bodies, neighborhoods, or culture, many of today’s emerging LGBT and Queer writers are influenced by the virus and it’s impacts. Our panel will explore the ongoing impact of HIV in queer lives, look at how even when not explicit, HIV/AIDS is implicit in emerging work, and discuss how intergenerational mentorship is impacting how HIV/AIDS is currently being represented in the future.
