This presentation uses the example of one social service agency in San Francisco, Proyecto ContraSIDA por Vida [Project Against AIDS for Life] to analyze how they negotiated and reimagined identity politics to respond to the social crisis that surrounds the AIDS pandemic. Through an examination of the agency’s programming, flyers, and events, I document how they used images and words as dynamic vehicles of representation to enrich the cultural and political climate in the service of radical social change.
