multimedia productions: the graying of AIDS: Larry, age 61, Springfield/Chicago

Most of my friends are dead. There’s a whole generation that disappeared in the male gay community. I didn’t think I was gonna live much longer, I kept making these three-year plans. I wanted to do something that made a difference. And I got to the end of the three years, and hell, I’m not dead yet. So I made another 3-year commitment. I’ve given up on doing that, it just doesn’t make any sense.
