Poster series based on AIDS epidemic in the 90s. Topic was chosen by doing a newspaper research on my birthdate, December 10 1991.
This poster shows how the 90s was declared a bad decade for Aids. Bush knew this ahead of time and kept silence. Eventually when he declared so he would always keep a smile on and go to meetings with top health officials to discuss this topic, fooling everyone with playing the good guy, “The doctor.”
After Magic Johnson came clear about having Aids he had people speculating about other celebrities having Aids as well. One being Madonna, her sexual life was focused on quickly twisting the truth of the importance of the matter, simply adding to the stigma. Many saying she had Aids because she was such a “Sex symbol."
Being an athlete Magic Johnson was constantly in the eyes of the teen audience. After he came out open about having Aids the youth did not give up on him but surprisingly took action and went out and got informed on the topic. Magic Johnson became a teacher with his courage to speak on the topic that was so taboo at the time.
