Not necessarily Cherik related, with the exception that this is a very good insight into the start of the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s, covering the year 1983 in which XMA is set.
About halfway through the video, you’ll hear a doctor describe AIDS as a “mutant virus.” This is what the canon Apocalypse viruses (Legacy Virus/Techno-Organic Virus) were based on. I’m not sure the viruses will make an appearance in XMA, but it may be there in subtext if not spelled out.
Since this blog will be expanding soon, and I’ll be including pretty much anything LGBT+ media related that I can find, this fits both ways.
Fair warning. This video caused me to collapse into sobs. It will probably affect you as well, so just be aware of that when you start watching. It’s worth every single second, and I couldn’t recommend it more.
More coming. Keep the Faith. ❤
