ACT UP

I dvr'd a special on TV last night. It was a documentary about ACT UP, the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power. The film was titled United in Anger. If you ever wanted to see a film about AIDS activism, this is the one.

Hmm...

I was just at an event with Larry Kramer last night talking about the first five years of the AIDS epidemic. Nice guy, he was one of my heroes when I was coming out.

Another documentary, which was just nominated for an Academy Award this year is How to Survive a Plague.

Also, for a different perspective, I have a friend who is profiled in a documentary about how San Francisco suffered the epidemic entitled We Were Here. I am friends with Ed in that one. (They only profile five main people in it)
