Gia Carangi 🖤 A beautiful 70’s supermodel, some say she was the first supermodel. Her success happened very quickly. Most models of her time were blonde and tan. Gia was different, a dark haired sultry beauty. She got addicted to heroin and died of AIDS complications in 1986. She was only 26 years old. She died the year I was born. It’s crazy to think of how far we’ve come in advancements for AIDS. We have new medications that can make it undetectable, we have medication to prevent it. Back then they were just learning what AIDS was. Also the advancements we’ve made with recovery programs, there’s more than just methadone. We’ve come a long way but so much more could be done. Her story is such a sad one, to think had she been living in a different time that things could’ve been different. She believed everything happens for a reason, so maybe her life and death shows us that addiction/aids can happen to anyone. Angelina Jolie plays her role in the movie GIA, a very good portrayal in my opinion, very talented acting. The movie is very accurate too because it was taken from her loved ones accounts and from Gia’s journals.
