Terry Fluker, an HIV/AIDS activist who has had AIDS since the early '90s, is trying to change that.
For his latest education and outreach project he has written, co-directed and produced a play, "Who Me? HIV/AIDS," which will be staged Sunday at the August Wilson Center. The play is co-sponsored by his organization and OraSure Technologies Inc., the primary manufacturer of tests for the HIV virus.

Terry Fluker, chairman of a prevention committee at the Southwestern Pennsylvania AIDS Planning Coalition, said that each artist participating in the show is expected to incorporate information about HIV/AIDS into his or her act.
"The venue is open to the public but the target is GLBTQ - so, most of the artists are from that community or those that embrace it or are gay-friendly," he said.
...
Another way that Fluker and several others are trying to raise awareness is with the church.
Fluker is also a minister in Pittsburgh and founder of Love Ministry Outreach Victors, a religious program that promotes AIDS awareness. He hopes that bringing AIDS education and awareness to the church will help break down the stigma surrounding the disease as he feels the black community is a very faith-based one.
"Usually the church sets the foundation for life issues and choices," Fluker said.
...
While Anderson and Fluker both look to the church as a vital center and the potential future for AIDS awareness in the black community, Pitt senior and Rainbow Alliance member Greerlin Thomas has other feelings.

For his latest education and outreach project he has written, co-directed and produced a play, "Who Me? HIV/AIDS," which will be staged Sunday at the August Wilson Center.
"It's a play about HIV/AIDS awareness education and encouraging people to get treatment and care. It's personal stories of people living with HIV and AIDS and a mother who lost a son to the disease," Mr. Fluker said.
It also includes music by local gospel, hip-hop and rhythm and blues artists and performances of hip-hop and creative dance.
Mr. Fluker is in the cast, along with Nathaniel Williams, Mary Henze, Richard Polk and Ida Starr.

They are not from any local theatrical companies; rather, Mr. Fluker said, they "are just those who have embraced this HIV and AIDS and have compassion to help educate the community.
"We want to reach everybody as far as HIV awareness," he added.
...
"A play like Terry's is aimed for the general public, but also for young people," he added. "It tells them you need to be worried about this ... and that there's hope."
Mr. Fluker's goal is to see them all get tested.
"I think the most interesting thing about the national [anti-HIV/AIDS] strategy is that we've started to talk about reducing new infections to the point of zero. And a lot of that's going to happen when we have people like Terry make HIV/AIDS part of the culture."
To that end, people who get tested this week can get free tickets to "Who Me? HIV/AIDS," which has a $10 admission. The testing sites are Pittsburgh Aids Task Force, Persad Center Inc. and Gay and Lesbian Community Center (GLCC).
Tickets also are available by emailing Mr. Fluker at terryfluker29@yahoo.com or at Dorsey's Record Shop, 7614 Frankstown Ave., Homewood.
