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?

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. http://eds.a.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.gsu.edu/eds/pdfviewer/pdfviewer?vid=4&sid=71902a03-ad50-42ae-adbf-0fd418bd87cb%40sessionmgr4008
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. https://journals.lww.com/aidsonline/Fulltext/2004/07230/The_bisexual_bridge_revisited___sexual_risk.19.aspx
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.

The Brazilian Journal Of Infectious Diseases: An Official Publication Of The Brazilian Society Of Infectious Diseases. http://eds.a.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.gsu.edu/eds/pdfviewer/pdfviewer?vid=7&sid=71902a03-ad50-42ae-adbf-0fd418bd87cb%40sessionmgr400
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.
