Bodyscapes Healing Arts is CELEBRATING RESILIENCE with San Francisco AIDS Foundation Elizabeth Taylor 50-Plus Network, Wednesday, December 5, at STRUT, 470 Castro Street, third floor, 6-8:30 p.m. Poetry starts promptly at 7 p.m.
Many of the artists were young people when they or their lovers were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. For over twenty-thirty years they have survived. Now, they live to tell younger members of the LGBTQIA+ communities what it is like to live past the AIDS epidemic. These long-term survivors have tremendous resilience and flexibility of mind and body. They are some of the LGBTQIA+ communities’ elders, the caretakers of valuable insights-deep and rich narratives full of subtlety and surprise.
