Fighting HIV Among African-Americans: Film Screening, Sept. 7th to 14th

Jackson, MS., meets Baltimore Jackson, MS., meets Baltimore

Back by popular demand, As Much As I Can (tag: #AsMuchAsICan), an immersive theatre experience, will be in Baltimore September 7th to 14th at the Baltimore War Memorial (101 North Gay Street), sponsored by the Community Cares Project (Facebook.com/theccpbmore).

As Much as I Can invites audiences into the lives of four men from Jackson, Mississippi, and Baltimore – two cities disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic. It explores their complex relationships to faith, family, community, friends, and themselves. Revealed are the disruptions, dreams, disappointments, and resiliencies the epidemic has spawned. Audiences can explore the universality of love, family, faith, and self-acceptance.

This experience is designed to elevate the voices of black gay men and encourage a transformative shift in attitudes, beliefs, and understanding. A major theme is the importance of listening to those most affected by HIV and supporting innovative community programs to address what The New York Times Magazine calls “a public health failure.”

The project is a key component of Accelerate, ViiV Healthcare’s response to two countervailing forces: the promise of the standard of care for HIV treatment and prevention; and the persistent, disproportionate impact of HIV on black Americans, especially gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men.  Accelerate’s community programs are driven by the perspectives of these men.
