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.
