The Bethesda Brotherhood

The Bethesda Brotherhood is an ongoing collaborative portrait project that consists of videos, photographs, and related ephemera. The project takes as its subject four HIV positive gay men over the age of 50 who are in good physical shape; all were found using the cruising website The material produced for each person is contingent on their respective lives; thus, no one format defines their media.
The project also charts our developing friendships, the rifts that might be present between my own poz body and their longevity with the virus, and the varying forms of kinship the project has conditioned and presented in the work.
