Do you know River Huston?
She's the poet laureate of Bucks County
, Pennsylvania. She is a sometimes controversial
HIV/AIDS educator, columnist
, a magazine "founded primarily to get information to HIV positive persons", she authored A Positive Life
; a photo documentary book about women living with HIV. Yes, she is HIV positive, but it changed her life in ways she didn't expect: "It took getting an HIV-positive diagnosis for me to realize I was a sex goddess
. If there is one thing that will improve a girl's sex life it is finding out she has AIDS."

Positive, by Ian Stephens.
Not, perhaps, in the tradition of Day Without Art. But...
Ian Stephens was a poet, musician, and performer from my neighbourhood in Montreal who died in 1996.
