What kind of community can survive two pandemics? César Cadabes’ one man show takes a closer look at what a Gay Filipino man goes through traveling from Hawaii to San Francisco. It is a journey where he discovers his most empowered self with a community that helps him survive the AIDS pandemic and enables him to thrive during the COVID pandemic. While there is now a COVID vaccine, there is none for AIDS after 40 years from the first reported cases. Self love, community love, romantic love and political protests intersect in César’s important story. This is not just a one man show, but a bridge to a better understanding of the AIDS pandemic and its importance to the current pandemic.
