1978-1991 uses both Jeffery Dahmer and Freddie Mercury to open the conversation about AIDS/HIV. In 1991, Dahmer was captured after his murderous rampage killed 17 men in Milwaukee. Dahmer was used in the media as a manifestation of the AIDS epidemic. Mercury passed away in 1991 due to bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS. As a 17 year old and coming to terms with my queer identity I assumed I would be infected and dead within years because of my choices. I cast myself in this video as the victims of Dahmer to make this point.

1978-1991 is also one of the videos in the installation Sissies and Psychopaths.
