ACT UP! Queer Anarchy

I remember living in Missoula, Montana, in the late 1980s when an old boyfriend of mine, Victor, came back from NYC -- 1987 or 1988 was it? -- talking about Queer Nation and AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power. At the time I was shocked and little offended. Today, I'm in awe of the power of ACT UP! and its affiliated wave of activist groups that shaped the current healthcare options for people with HIV/AIDS and saved so many lives. Here's to Queer Anarchy! 

A New Wave of AIDS Rage
