TFA Project TITANIC FREDDIE AIDS is a unique lecture created by Czech singer, Milan Satnik. It describes a parallel of two world-famous "giants", the Titanic – the unsinkable ocean ship and Freddie Mercury – the phenomenal rock legend. Milan invited Freddie Mercury's former personal assistant, Mr. Peter Freestone to this project, to tell the sad and tragic story about how the world's legend was infected with the HIV virus until the point where Freddie was dying. This project is marked "without censorship". How else to impart information about a disease that has not yet been cured and still kills.
TFA Project - TITANIC FREDDIE AIDS
We are traveling to elementary schools with this presentation. This lecture also came to audiences in Great Britain, USA and Switzerland. It has been officially supported by the City of Pardubice and the Assistance Center of Ústí nad Labem, which is involved in many educational projects for pupils of primary and secondary schools. Our program starts with an introductory video, which includes the guitarist of the band Queen, Dr. Brian May with a message for the young generation. Then continues a video that points to the strength of the giants, Titanic and Freddie Mercury. Following the video projection follows a brief history of the Titanic Steamship. Subsequently, Peter Freestone tells his story. The final video shows the parallel between how AIDS destoys and the catastrophe that ended the voyage of the Titanic, to hidden dangers many of which are unseen. The time of this presentation is adapted to just about 80 minutes. Presentations usually take place in interactive classrooms of schools, cinemas, gym rooms or cultural halls, where video and audio projection equipment is needed. Our main goal is to travel and reach out as much as possible to the general public to inform them about this dangerous illness. This project has seen by about 7,000 elementary and secondary school pupils since 2013. This project is supported by a worldwide organisation that fights illness aids THE MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST
The Mercury Phoenix Trust was founded by Brian May, Roger Taylor and their manager Jim Beach in memory of rock band Queen’s iconic lead singer FREDDIE MERCURY who died in 1991 from AIDS.
In the last 21 years the Trust has given away over 15 million dollars in his name and funded over 700 projects in the global battle against HIV/AIDS.
We need your support to maintain our present donor level and to keep funding the desperately needed HIV/AIDS initiatives globally. Together, help us to use Freddie’s memory, his charisma and drive to eradicate this disease.
