Annotated Bibliography Two

The Names Project preserves panels that have powerful images and stories that are contained within them. This helps expand the awareness of AIDS everywhere. Currently, there are more 48,000 panels that make up the quilt, and it continues to grow. Some letter includes letters and photos which help represent what multimodality is.The Names Project help ensure that the Quilt and those represented in them live on. Hopefully the source below can help answer my research question which is: How are individuals who lived in the Eureka Valley, San Fransico (The Castro) embodied in the Aids Quilt?

Delineating differences: Sub-communities in the San Francisco gay community

Ben Peacock, a., Stephen L. Eyre, a., Sandra Crouse Quinn, a., & Susan Kegeles, a. (2001). Delineating Differences: Sub-Communities in the San Francisco Gay Community. Culture, Health & Sexuality.

There are several authors for this source but Stephen L. Eyre graduated from The University of California with a Ph.D. The purpose of this article is to analyze the subgroup of gay and bisexual men of color in San Fransico, and how they are a community that is conceived as monolithic. This article discusses how subcommittees develop around culturally charged areas. The intended audience for this article would be anyone who wants to know about gay men of color that live in San Fransico that are conceived as monolithic. This information would be helpful to anyone who wants to learn more about gay men of color in San Francisco.

This article was not useful to the connection of my artifact. I pursued this article for information about gay men of color in San Francisco( because Bobby Orr was Hispanic) and possibly how they could have been treated differently than others.

Homeless gay and transgender youth of color in San Francisco:“No one likes street kids”—Even in the Castro

RECK, J. (2009). Homeless Gay and Transgender Youth of Color in San Francisco: “No One Likes Street Kids”—Even in the Castro. Journal Of LGBT Youth.

Jen Reck is the author of this article and has been a lecturer in the Departments of Sociology and Sexuality Studies at San Francisco State University. In this article she examines how family issues, poverty, and homophobia lead them to homelessness, thus making “gay-friendly” places meaningful to them. The purpose of this article is to see how participation in a friendly gay neighborhood contributes to the variability of gay youth. The intended audience for this article who be a researcher who wants to learn how different environments affects the behavior or attitude of a person. This information would be helpful to someone who is interested in learning about this stuff, or someone who simply wants to join one of these communities.

This is useful to my connection to this artifact because it discusses how in different and better environments gay youth can really explore their identities. So in a different environment, they can really be themselves rather than hiding who they really are and that’s what the Castro was created for.

The bisexual bridge revisited: sexual risk behavior among men who have sex with men and women, San Francisco, 1998–2003

Prabhu, R., Owen, C. L., Folger, K., & McFarland, W. (2004). The bisexual bridge revisited: sexual risk behavior among men who have sex with men and women, San Francisco, 1998-2003. Aids.

There are several authors of this article but Willi McFarland graduated from UCSF School of Medicine with his MD, Ph.D., and MPH. In this are they wanted to make the connection between unprotected anal intercourse with one or more panters of unknown HIV increased in bisexual men than in women. The purpose of this was to see who was more immune to the disease and it showed that women were. The intended audience of this study would be anyone who is research aids and immunity regarding gender. This information who be useful for someone who wants to learn how to prevent this from happening to them.

This connects to my artifact because Bobby Orr was a male and died of aids. So maybe because he was a man and he also probably wasn’t protected is why he died from aids.

Transitioning through AIDS epidemics-gender and temporality

Pinto, C. S., Dos Santos Fernandes, C. E., Oliveira, R. d., Matos, V. d., & Motta de Castro, A. C. (2015). Transitioning through AIDS epidemics – gender and temporality. The Brazilian Journal Of Infectious Diseases: An Official Publication Of The Brazilian Society Of Infectious Diseases.

Pinto CS is the Health Department of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Campo Grande, Brazil. In this article, they wanted to understand the evolution of AIDS over time in Brazil using incidence, lethality, and morality coefficients. In this study, they found that AIDS was higher among men, during the first 14 years of this epidemic, and that women were 1.3 times more likely to survive than men. This information would be useful for someone who is doing research looking for the correlation between aids and gender. The intended audience for this study would researchers who want more information on aids and gender so that they can make a conclusion.

This article was useful to the connection to my article because Bobby Orr was a male and died of aids. The only flaw with this is that the research was done in Brazil, and not America. At the time this epidemic wasn’t only affecting people in America but all over the world.

Trips to fantasy island: contexts of risky sex for San Francisco gay men

Díaz, R. M. (1999). Trips to Fantasy Island: Contexts of Risky Sex for San Francisco Gay Men. Sexualities

Rafael Diaz has a Ph.D. and is a licensed clinical psychologist, who does psychotherapy for Gay men, in Santa Rosa, Ca. This article gives an analysis based on the comparison of sexual sexcapade reported in interviews with gay men in San Fransico. The purpose of this article is to make interpersonal connections that connect to our need for sexual safety and health with eventually overpowers. The intended audience for this article would be someone who wants to make the connection between gay men of San Fransico and sexual experiences and how it can emotionally affect them. This information who be helpful someone doing research on gay men and aids.

This article was useful for the connection to my artifact because not only does it make the connection of gay men in San Fransico and AIDS but it also its describes the emotional connection of it. How they feel the need to be wanted and connected just like everyone else.


Annotated Bibliography One

The Names Project was a memorial created so that those who died from AIDS would be remembered. Below are some sources that make a connection between the AIDS epidemic and the panel that I have chosen for this project which is about Bobby Orr.

Gay Identity-Related Factors and Sexual Risk Among Men Who Have Sex with Men in San Fransico

Flores, S. A., Mansergh, G., Marks, G., Guzman, R., & Colfax, G. (2009). Gay identity-related factors and sexual risk among men who have sex with men in San Francisco. AIDS Education And Prevention: Official Publication Of The International Society For AIDS Education.

There are several authors of this article, like Stephen A. Flores who graduated from University of Texas medical school with honors. These authors used evidence like bibliographies and tables to make the relationship between gays and unprotected anal sex. The purpose of this article is to see if gays and unprotected anal sex have any correlation to the aids epidemic, they take in consideration of many factors such as; racial and ethnical differences. In this case, Bobby Orr ethical difference would have been of the Hispanic community. A researcher who is looking for extra data or evidence may be interested in this article. Those who are gay or are interested in anal sex may find this researcher and information useful.

This article is related to Bobby Orr because he was gay and was probably affected by the aids epidemic for this reason. Though it may not be very helpful for him, in this study they are doing this to get a better understanding of the relationship between the two and how they correlate between one another.

Growing older with HIV/AIDS: new public health challenges

Cahill, S., & Valadéz, R. (2013). Growing Older With HIV/AIDS: New Public Health Challenges. American Journal Of Public Health.

Sean Cahill, Ph.D. is Director of Health Policy Reseach at the Fenway Institute. In this article they are trying to find a way to help prevent aids/ HIV, using long-term antiretroviral. The purpose of this article is to find research that could improve the health outcome for those who are HIV positive because there are some challenges that we have discovered now that we didn’t know during the 1960’s. The intended audience is other researchers who are also trying to improve the health of those who are HIV positive. This information would be useful for someone who found out they have HIV.

This does connect to my article because though Bobby Orr died from aids, he did have some time to grow with it which made a huge impact on his life. This information who have been helpful to Bobby Orr because with this treatment he could have probably lived a long life.

Homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth in New York City: Insights from the field

Ream, G. L., & Forge, N. R. (2014). Homeless Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Youth in New York City: Insights from the Field. Child Welfare

Ream and Forge are the authors of this article and are affiliated with Adelphi University and Georgia Stae University. This article only reviews information that already exists to make the connection of LGBT youth that is homeless in New York City. The purpose of this article is to describe how people who are LGBT have been kicked out of there homes and involved themselves with drug and sexual activities, causing them to get aids/ HIV. The intended audience s from researchers looking for a way to get youth children off of the streets of New York. This information who be helpful for anyone who is interested in doing research on homelessness and LGBT.

This article wasn’t useful for my connection to my artifact. I pursued this article to find more information about the LGBT community in New York of the 1980’s. New York was a visual mode of communication on my panel and I thought making the connection between aids and New York during the 1980’S would help give more information about aids and the LGBT Community.

Recipes for Attention: Policy Reforms, Crises, Organizational Characteristics, and the Newspaper Coverage of the LGBT Movement, 1969–2009

Elliott, T. A., Amenta, E., & Caren, N. (2016). Recipes for Attention: Policy Reforms, Crises, Organizational Characteristics, and the Newspaper Coverage of the LGBT Movement, 1969-2009. Sociological Forum.

Edwin Amenta is an American socialist known for his study in social policy and social movements. They use qualitative comparison analyses of the national coverage to help appraise their argument. Which would be that media and politics help integrate organizations characteristics and action. In this article, they wanted to understand why the LGBT Comminutiny had such a high impact on this social movement. This article is for researchers interested in social relations and social movements. The information could be useful for anyone who feels left out or neglected by the world and wants to do something positive about it.

This article is very useful for my artifact because it’s obvious that Bobby Orr stood for something, so for him to know that he had all this support and that he wasn’t the only one would have been very empowering. This photo is from the era of limits for the LGBT Community during the 1970’s in Los Angeles.

This source connects to my artifact because for Bobby Orr and article like would have been very helpful. Showing and explaining ways to prevent aids/HIV for people just like him. This information who have been helpful to him while he was alive. The photo here just reminds ever one to use protection to prevent not only aids but pregnancy and other possible infections.
