"Le gai de l'annee."
Dans notre magazine de ce soir, nous vous présentons un sujet douloureux: L'homosexualíte au temps de SIDA...Tout de suite écoutons le témoignage de Reynald, 29 ans, un jeune artiste de multimedia.
In our magazine this evening, we present to you a painful subject: Homosexuality in the time of AIDS. Now, let us listen to the testament of Reynald, who is twenty-nine years old, a young multimedia artist. For me, the fact that I am a homosexual has never been a problem in the least. I must say that I am lucky to have the chance to live in an apartment in Marais. Buzz, Buzz. My homosexuality, I assume entirely it is a strength! It is lucky for an artist like me...But I remain vigilant;I show my gay-pride every year: Here I am as a drag-queen with Line Renaud! This is my girlfriend, I love her!...I even own the entire collection of ACT UP t-shirts. I put a lot of effort into it...I ride a mountain bike. I really suffer from homophobia... ...In addition, I chew chewing-gum with ginseng. I signed a petition in favor of the C.U.S. (Communities Under Siege). I go to the gym... I only eat organic... And, I also, I cry every evening when Bruno Masure leaves...Reynald...and the AIDS? ...What? Pardon? The AIDS?! That's what I tell you: with all that I do, I am completely immune!
