Is love greater than our secrets? The film 90 DAYS explores that question through the story of a man and a woman who are faced with a life-altering decision after ninety days of dating. The heavy burden of HIV/AIDS on the black LGBT community is well-known; however, black women are also disproportionately at risk, with approximately 40,000 women living with HIV/AIDS in New York State. It’s time to have an honest conversation about testing and prevention, as well as the ways that stigma can get in the way of healthy relationships. The panel will explore these topics, as well as the goals of New York State’s blueprint for Ending the Epidemic of HIV/AIDS.

Nathan and Jennia plan to travel the country with the series called 90 DAYS: ADVOCACY, ACTIVISM & STORYTELLING ©, a series of screenings and discussions about healthy relationships, created by Nathan Hale Williams.  For additional information on community engagement, sponsorship and/or media inquiries contact Richard E.
