The show is celebrated for capturing the youthful joy of being gay in an urban environment while showing the painful moments of the AIDS crisis, but “It’s a Sin” is also frought with sensationalism and harmful portrayals of HIV and AIDS tropes.
As Dr. Frank N Furter would say “How SENTIMENTAL.”
While watching the series, we were struck with how much the central character of Jill Baxter, who is overwhelmed helping her gay friends manage the AIDS crisis, reminded us of Victoria Noe who came on this podcast to talk about her book “Fag Hags, Divas and Moms: The Legacy of Straight Women in the AIDS Community.”
Today writer Victoria Noe joins us to take a look at Russel T Davies’ miniseries “It’s a Sin” and what it was like for her and her close friends through the AIDS crisis.
