Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Anthony Godby Johnson was a 1990s miracle: a boy who escaped years of horrific abuse only to discover that he was dying of AIDS. A boy who authored his own autobiography. A boy who earned friends and fans worldwide—and who did not exist. Featuring Oprah Winfrey, the remnants of Anthony Godby Johnson's long-forgotten television special, and the first public glimpse of the hoaxer behind the myth, TONY FRAGINALS explores the scandal from the point of view of Tony's 'little brother'.

Portland Film Festival took place between 6th - 8th October 2021. The film, Tony Fraginals, written, directed and produced by Ben Young was shown.
