"Never Too Late": A gay basketball player deals with HIV positivity as he meets people


soccer field, Arlington VA 2021/7

Never Too Late”, 5 minutes, short film by Roger Slate in August 2016.

An attractive, college-age young man is shooting hoops when another young man walking a dog comes by and makes friends.

Then we learn that the basketball player is HIV-positive and tells his doctor that the protease inhibitors cause headaches and nausea.  Then he has to tell his new boyfriend.

The film seems to come from southern California and is fully American, but YouTube has some credits in Russian alphabet, which is odd.
