So... when did you figure out that you had AIDS? consists of home video footage recorded when I was 13 years old in which I play the role of "a man dying from AIDS" on a daytime talk show. The video predates both my HIV diagnosis and entrance into art academia by six years. The video serves as a foundational work within my art and identity histories, as it predicts themes of performativity and representation that I would later come to explore.
