PosterVirus: Claiming Sexual Autonomy for People with HIV Through Collective Action / by Alexander McClelland

Pleased to see the launch of the new book Mobilizing Metaphor Art, Culture, and Disability Activism in Canada edited by Dr. Christine Kelly & Dr. Michael Orsini. Jessica Whitbread and I have a chapter in the book looking at 4 years of our work on the PosterVirus activist/art affinity group of AIDS ACTION NOW! In the chapter, we engage with a series of the posters from over the years and discuss how those works have acted to stake claims forour sexual autonomy as people living with HIV - in a world organized around regulating and controlling our bodies.
