In this episode of Life Positive on PromoHomo.TV®, Producer/Host Nicholas Snow welcomes Mark S. King, author of My Fabulous Disease: Chronicles of a Gay Survivor, an anthology spanning four decades. This interview takes place during King’s national book tour and just ahead of his September 13th appearance in Palm Springs, California. (6:30 PM at the Mizell Center, 480 S. Sunrise Way).
In the book’s foreword, Greg Louganis writes:
My Fabulous Disease: Chronicles of a Gay Survivor is an anthology spanning four decades – in turns emotional, biting and hilarious – from activist and writer Mark S. King.
The sum of these chronicles is a manifesto of survival. But they also are a portrait of a man giggling through a graveyard. There is a sense of joyful gratitude that permeates even the darkest chapters, a throughline of cheeky optimism that makes the tragedy bearable and the humor uproarious.
My Fabulous Disease: Chronicles of a Gay Survivor divulges King’s intimate triumphs and misfires along with glimpses of his Southern family coming to terms with a gay son, his harrowing drug addiction and eventual recovery, and a lifetime spent skating on the cracked ice of HIV.
Palm Springs Event Set for September 13 at Mizell Center
The Palm Springs area signing and reading event will feature readings from the book not only by King himself, but also by:
- Jeff Taylor, H+ARP
- Jax Kelly, Let’s Kick ASS Palm Springs
- Bella da Ball, Entertainer and Icon
- Dr. David Morris, Desert AIDS Project
Nicholas Snow will host and moderate the panel.
My Fabulous Disease: Chronicles of a Gay Survivor is available in the Palm Springs area at Best Bookstore (180 E Tahquitz Canyon Way), at the Mizell Center the night of the event, and worldwide on Amazon.
