About the Project

Visible Women was the second project of Fear of Disclosure, a series of videos that explored the act of revealing an HIV-positive or AIDS diagnosis. The video was televised during six viewing dates in Manhattan and the Bronx and was arranged in observation of World AIDS Day and Day Without Art 1991.


A twenty-six minute video, Visible Women focused on the heroic and positive response of Latina women to the AIDS crisis. Through community education, poetry, activism, and dance, women with AIDS challenged notions of female invisibility and complacency in the face of the epidemic.
