State of Michigan HIV & STD Conference

August 22, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Let’s be honest, you can’t have a conversation–you don’t know how to have. So where do conversations about HIV begin today? How can we have a sex-positive dialogue about subject that has only been described in the most negative light? In this film 90 Days our goal is to dispel prevailing myths about what it means to be HIV positive, particularly when it comes to dating, sex, marriage, and having children. This 20 minute short is a compelling piece that gives people of color, a vision for establishing and developing a pattern for intimate conversations around disclosure, STI/STD status and integrating healthy intimate sexual relationships beyond your status. We wanted to help break down stigma associated with being positive. However, we also wanted to be realistic in portraying the emotional complexity of dealing with the virus. In 90 Days and at the end of this 20-minute short lets answer questions that can change the landscape of this disability amongst the populations that have been impacted the most, but addressed the least. Conversations can save lives as much as medicine. Let’s discuss the cure.
