World AIDS Day Show With a Twist

My personal journey from pending AIDS victim to AIDS rethinker and the larger implications the story evokes are featured in a double segment on ABC's 20/20. The show airs on World AIDS Day, Friday December 1st. Please check local listings for the time and channel in your area. The show is followed by a live internet chat with yours truly (yikes--I can barely send e mails!).

From what the producer tells me, there's no lack of drama. From footage of Charlie's birth to my interview with Connie Chung and sound bite sparring with Dr. Maltide Krim of AmFAR, the show packs in lots of food for thought in 18 minutes. It seems there will be something to inspire and/or anger everyone on all sides of the issue.

As you may know, 20/20 became interested in doing a show on the topic after Newsweek drop kicked me into the media spotlight with "The HIV Disbeliever," a mostly unfavorable four page report that imagined me as the mother of all AIDS dissidents. Although brimming with unfounded assertions, dopey ideas, and the usual name calling, the article has brought nothing but good things our way. I continue to be amazed by the number of people who see through the spin of Newsweek.

Immediately following the article, I was contacted by 60 Minutes, 20/20, Good Morning America, CNN and other news shows. Every producer wanted "an exclusive" so I had to pick one program. I picked 20/20 because they wanted to show the human side of the story which I think makes a better introduction than hard science.

Let's hope the program will open up some minds and some meaningful discussions.

For anyone interested, a video tape copy of the broadcast can be purchased from ABC for about $15.

To everyone in the states, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Take care,
