Outrageous AIDS Activism!

(Co-sponsored by “Dis-Orienting AIDS Discourse”, a symposium hosted by the UA Institute for LGBT Studies)

Stephen Winter’s audacious 1996 feature debut, “Chocolate Babies,” is a period satire about a bunch of HIV-positive Asian and black drag queens who decide to take matters in hand and fight the government’s apathy toward AIDS. Winter, a young African-American director, has constructed an outrageous tale, set in a harsh underworld populated by ethnic minority members infected with the virus. Aware of, but unwilling to accept passively their status as queer outcasts, the protagonists form a terrorist gang dedicated to the agenda of attacking conservative and homophobic politicians. Join us at Exploded view for a riotous & powerful evening celebrating a great time capsule of queer poetic terrorism!
