He worked with the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and Jean Carlomusto to produce Living with AIDS, a cable tv show that ran from 1988 – 1994, and cofounded with others, DIVA (Damned Interfering Video Activists) TV, which partnered with ACT UP to document protests and actions as an alternative to the depictions in the mainstream media.
