Abstract:

Three powerful profiles of men and women whose lives were changed forever by the AIDS epidemic"Some of my reasons for wanting to write about AIDS were altruistic, others selfish. AIDS was decimating the community around me; there was a need to bear witness. AIDS had turned me and others like me into walking time bombs; there was a need to strike back, not just wait to die. What I didn''t fully appreciate then, however, was the extent to which I was trying to bargain with AIDS: If I wrote about it, maybe I wouldn''t get it. My article ran in May 1985. But AIDS didn''t keep its part of the barga.
