AIDS is one of those few four-capital-letter worded diseases that puts everyone on the edge of their seats, like MRSA, SARS, or SIDS.
You really have to give it up to the creative person who came up with the acronym for AIDS! Do you guys have a good acronym the CDC can use for the Bird Flu? How about BUFFY (Bird Universal Flu from the Yangtze)? P2005AIDS (Pandemic Avian Influenza Disease Syndrome)?
On todays show Victoria Lamarr, Marc, and Fausto talk about one of their favorite topics: AIDS. The ethics of treating and having the disease, the persecution of those with it, and the paranoia surrounding this controversial topic.
Lots of talk also on horny giraffes, intersex fish, and fruity fruit flies. Pictured on the right is one of those gay fruit flies: he’s on fire! Just look at that tacky purple eyeshadow and bright red lipstick.
Tomorrow David Cerda joins Fausto for a two-part interview with NYC playwright, screenwriter and film star Charles Bush. He wrote and starred in “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” and also wrote/starred in the film adaptations of “Psycho Beach Party” and “Die Mommie Die!” Don’t miss this one. On Monday we have our super sized 200th show!
