When actor Matthew Cavan was diagnosed with HIV+ 10 years ago he felt totally isolated. He lives in Northern Ireland, a conservative and religious province of the UK which was way behind in its acceptance of the LGBTQ community let alone those with HIV.
Supported by his close family + friends Cavan created Cherrie On Top as his drag queen alter ego to give him confidence and made two documentaries on his life’s journey filled with such positivity and now he talks with QUEERGURU about the joy of being regarded as role mole for the community #NickyLarkinBBC Northern Ireland
Olympic Diving Champion Greg Louganis has never stopped making a splash all his life and in recent years it has been as an outstanding LGBT activist and an exemplary HIV awareness advocate for which Equality Florida have given him their highest honor THE VOICE FOR EQUALITY AWARD. We tracked him down to his home in California to talk about this …. and love and life too. He is a disarmingly charming man, but most of all he is an American Hero.
