Metaphysical Alliance “AIDS Survivors and Thrivers”

Published on Dec 30, 2017

Metaphysical Alliance AIDS Survivors and Thrivers monthly AIDS Healing Service at the Unitarian Church in San Francisco on January 27, 1987 featuring long-term survivors Ron Carey, Bobby Reynolds, and Dan Turner. Also featuring Mike Zonta as MC, Irene Smith’s closing meditation and David Hummel of the AIDS Interfaith Network.

The videographer was Richard Locke. This video was converted from a 30-year-old VHS tape so the quality is not as up to par as it might be. But it is a historically important video exemplifying the late ’80s San Francisco gay and AIDS community at its best.

It’s a little slow in the beginning, but it gets better and concludes with a powerful closing meditation by Irene Smith. People were so moved they didn’t want to go home.
