Description

Acquired for research for my doctoral disseration, and then monograph, "AIDS TV." Ellen Spiro is a friend and fellow AIDS video activist videomaker and documentarian. I interview her in my documentary "Video Remains" (2005) as well as many other feminist lesbain AIDS activists who are also represented in my VHS collection: i.e. Juanita Mohammed Sczepanski, Alisa Lebow, and Sarah Schulman. I recently produced a short AIDS doc for Ellen (with Cheryl Dunye as director) "DiAna's Hair Ego Remix."
