A Litany for Survival
In New York City during 1989, the AIDS crisis was at an all-time high. For queer people across the nation, the threat of extinction became more palpable with every passing day. But what did it really mean to be queer at this time? Was it to live with an illness? Be an activist? A drag queen? A sex worker? A survivor? A fighter? In A Litany For Survival, seven different queer lives intertwine after the death of a beloved matriarch in their community. As they come together and draw apart, each character must face up to the line between fantasy and reality. But most importantly, in the process of surviving the biggest pandemic in modern history, these seven lives unearth a sacred kinship forged by community.
