Kissing Doesn't Kill

Versions 1-4

1990, 40 sec each, color, sound

These deftly edited video spots were produced by Gran Fury, an AIDS activist collective of which Kalin was a founding member. Kissing couples promote safer sex in these public service announcements, which pump the medium with a purposely propagandistic message: "Kissing Doesn't Kill: Greed and Indifference Do." Commissioned for broadcast on ABC during the first Red, Hot & Blue special, the spots were rejected by the network based on their inter-racial couples and overtly political content.
