The CDC recently issued new HIV prevention guidelines that would mandate all organizations that get any federal funding to submit all surveys, curricula, web materials, posters, ads, brochures, etc. to new community-based Policy Review Panels. Politically appointed censors rather than health officials will now decide what's acceptable in terms of HIV prevention and education. Materials must promote abstinence and include a message about the ineffectiveness of condom use in preventing the spread of HIV and STDs. There is a period of public comment on the new regulations until August 16. - more inside -
Public Lives: Freddie Mercury, Arthur Ashe, Rock Hudson, Brad Davis, Perry Ellis, Eazy E, Michel Foucault, Amanada 'Miss Kitty' Blake, Roy Cohn, Halston, Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe, Rudolf Nureyev, Anthony Perkins, Willi Smith, Liberace, Ricky Wilson. Private lives: Gail Farrow, T Billy, Bob BJ Johnson, Nkoosi Johnson, Terry McCormick, Catherine Margaret Cory. Public or private, we've all had losses. Is there anyone you are remembering today?
Artists and AIDS - in 1986, Mesami Teraoka began his series of AIDS themed watercolors and they have been exhibited widely since. The art community has been an important force in raising both public awareness and funds for the AIDS epidemic. Visual AIDS has been in the forefront of mobilizing the art community. The site contains a rich archive of work since 1999, with special exhibits on art for Africa and the women of Visual Aids. Another international effort, Artists for AIDS, was started by Canadian artists to raise money for African children with AIDS. Some earlier group art projects include Ten Years, Ten Artists, Making Art & Raising Hell and Art Against AIDS, a Ukrainian collection of posters and prints. Some art contains adult themes & Teraoka's site has a warning.
