National Queer Arts Festival presents We, and Mr. Mauri:  Turning Poison Into Medicine

TURNING POISON INTO MEDICINE is a premiere video screening of a documentary that tells the stories of SF Bay Area Queer Latina/os who are living with and have died of SIDA/AIDS during the years 1988 to the present.  This project explores Queer Latina/o identity, issues of dis-ease, and health wellness.  This hybrid work-in-progress will portray several queer Bay Area Latina/o activists, and their fight with and eventual succumbing to SIDA/AIDS  Mauricio Delgado, John, Juarez, Margarita Benitez, Francisco X. Zamora, Rodrigo Reyes, Chente Valenzuela, and others.  

We, Queer of Color familia and community members are still healing from the horrific deaths of our sisters and brothers from the SIDA/AIDS pandemic.  This project, beyond memorial, is also a step in the process of turning the era of poison into loving medicine for present and future understanding.
