August 18 — “Passive Genocide” — Joe Glatz
AIDS swept through the LGBTQ+ community in the1980s and 1990s to devastating effects. But it didn’t have to. Thousands died to inaction on the part of people who had the power to step and chose to turn a blind eye. Meanwhile, people across the United States who saw the destruction first-hand chose to ACT-UP for their own lives and the lives of their fellow humans. They did not play at respect- ability. They were running out of time. The legacy of both reverberates still today.
