Film screening on World AIDS Day visualizes connections between HIV and disability

December 1, 2023

On December 1, Public Humanities was proud to co-sponsor a special screening of Everyone I Know is Sick, a program of five short videos highlighting connections between HIV and other forms of illness and disability. The film program was commissioned by Visual AIDS for their annual commemoration of Day With(out) Art, an international day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis on December 1. The program featured work by Dorothy Cheung, Hiura Fernandes and Lili Nascimento, Beau Gomez, Dolissa Medina and Ananias P. Soria, Vasilios Papapitsios, and Kurt Weston, and it was preceded by an introduction given by Alex Fialho, Ph.D. candidate in the History of Art and African American Studies and former Visual AIDS Programs Director, and Cierra Michele Peters, MFA in Graphic Design, 2026. Many thanks to our partners at Visual AIDS, the Yale Office of LGBTQ Resources, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Yale Center for British Art for making this event possible.
