WORLD AIDS DAY – 25 Years of AIDS Retrospective in Film and TV – Watch the Video

From Michael Fairman: Back in October of 2006, it was my honor to produce for the Outfest Honors, their inaugural Legacy Tribute commemorating the first 25 years of AIDS through film, television and documentary productions and performances, that brought to light issues of the day about this disease to not only the LGBT community, but to the world.

It was also one of my greatest honors to have Judith Light who starred in The Ryan White Story introduce the clip package for the first time before the attendees in the theatre.  With her moving introduction, and these emotional moments and depictions, we shed tears, and these films in part are still as relevant as ever.

From Philadelphia to Longtime Companion, to An Early Frost to Paul Monette: The Brink of Summer’s End, to It’s My Party and Angels In America, to Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt, I had assembled a tribute with over 20 different looks at the fight of HIV/AIDS from different perspectives.

Today on World AIDS Day, remember our loved ones, dear friends, and acquaintances, who passed away from complications from HIV/AIDS.  Light a candle and remember their spirit and the joy they brought to our lives.  The fight is far from over.  Now, as we enter into 2011, we are on the verge of the year that will mark 30 years since the first cases of AIDS were identified, and yet there is still no cure, but progress is being made.

Watch the 2006 Outfest Honors Legacy Tribute, 25 Years of AIDS Retrospective video below.

Michael, I am overwhelmed and I’m glad that you reminded all of us of the importance of this day . The clips from every one of those films cut right through my heart. So beautiful and so sad. I commend you for your sensitivity in your work. I hope evryone who saw this will be as affected as I am. Bravo for a great piece of work and remembrance. Let us all keep remembering……..

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
