Voices From the AIDS Crisis

By 1981, clusters of patients with similar symptoms appeared in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Queer communities banded together across the country and turned their pain and anger into direct action advocacy. Here are memoirs and histories that describe the AIDS crisis. Their stories are full of pain, anger, and loss that eventually turn into hope. These firsthand accounts from survivors, partners, activists, caregivers, medical professionals, and community leaders show the power of organizing and working together to affect positive change in the face of adversity and loss.
