The AIDS Lady

As with her original works Chicana Atheist and My Arab Fall, local playwright and performer Anna DeLuna drew from personal experiences and encounters when penning The AIDS Lady, an outreach-minded play geared especially for teens and young adults. Informed by years working with the San Antonio AIDS Foundation as a tester and educator, the one-woman show sees DeLuna transforming into an array of characters as a means to encourage HIV testing, remove fear associated with AIDS and “humanize the virus” through the stories of HIV-positive individuals. In observance of National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, DeLuna revives The AIDS Lady for two performances presented in partnership with the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) and the City of San Antonio Department for Culture and Creative Development (DCCD). In conjunction with the performances, SAAF’s mobile testing unit will be on hand offering free HIV and syphilis screenings from 10am to 2pm.
