All in HIV


Once my mama found out, she began to [treat me different]. It made me upset to the point I just didn’t want to be around nobody. Her people, her sisters and brothers, them some ignorant folks when it comes down to HIV. I’d have to clean with Clorox every time I used the bathroom. I went into a shell. I went into a deeper depression.


In 1990, I was working on a three year contract as a dancer, in Germany. I was about to go on stage when I got the call that my mom only had two weeks to live. She had full blown AIDS.
