Norman-Based Documentary Seeks to Shatter the Stigma Around HIV/AIDS
Though his voice is now silent, a gay Oklahoma teen's words live on in a documentary that premiered at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History last night. Broken Heart Land focuses on 19-year-old Zachary Harrington of Norman. He committed suicide in 2010, after keeping his HIV-positive diagnosis a secret for over a year.
