Body Counts: A Promise Kept

For me, writing Body Counts was not simply an exploration of my own life. It was a promise kept, a responsibility as a survivor of the Plague Years to pay tribute to the friends, lovers and comrades who fought — and died — to make a change in the epidemic. I discuss this impetus for writing Body Counts in this video below, shot by my friend, videographer Christopher King of Endless Echo

In his new book Body Counts, Sean Strub, founder of the groundbreaking POZ magazine, producer of the hit play "The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me," and the first openly HIV-positive candidate for US Congress, charts his remarkable life-a story of politics and AIDS and a powerful testament to loss, hope, and survival.
