Sex Positive and Richard Berkowitz

Richard Berkowitz

Sex Positive examines the life work of safe sex advocate Richard Berkowitz. In the early 1980’s Berkowitz fought an uphill struggle in the gay community as he tried to persuade gay men to use a condom. He was often ridiculed or seen as a hypocrite. As an ex-hustler, Berkowitz became all to aware of the dangers of unprotected sex in the early 80’s and of the epidemic that would wipe out a generation and ultimately change forever the sexual practices of the gay community. The Grand Jury Prize winner at L.A. Outfest, this documentary gives praise where it is due and reveals a time in history that was once freer but ultimately deadly.
