We now know that the AIDS Epidemic magically popped up out of nowhere and people believed they were not at risk unless they were Homosexual Men . Now we know of course, that was the false hood that spread faster than the virus itself. In the early years of AIDS it was call “Gay Man’s Cancer” but even before that it was called “The Gay Man’s Health Crisis” meaning middle class Christian America turned an ignorant ear to the impending plague. The uniform of an AIDS patient, of course was Kaposi Sacoma (purple blotches)that were a dead give away that you were infected.
Ronald Reagan did not give a damn, if the “others” died.As we know now, AIDS has dominated the lives of many urban married, single, white, heterosexual people. The facts were few and far between, on the origins and possible cure when it comes to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. There are many conspirators regarding who and how AIDS was released to the masses.
Act UP’s angry protest and public funeral of Marc Fischer! The anger of ghost of people who are no longer breathing but died with no regard. If the epidemic would have been pushed to the forefront of everyone’s agenda. It would have remained contained and millions would be alive today.
Regan and Bush didn’t ponder AIDS as anything political and financially beneficial to him. Why would he care about funding for the “others” and now, we all are the “others” and I know I am HIV Negative, but I know so many that are living with this disease. Now AIDS and HIV doesn’t kill you immediately as before. You live longer, my cousin succumbed to AIDS earlier this year. She was diagnosed in 1989, you can live for 20 years with the virus, just as Larry Kramer, Magic Johnson, Andy Bell(Erasure), and many others that have contracted the AIDS Virus.
This is how gay men were dying; no one knew what was happening but this is a visual approach to beginning of the plague years.This is a private moment released to bring you into the epidemic as it quietly crept on into a nationwide fury.Protect yourself, and live…
Collecting footage from personal films will enable you to envision the time, that some heard about or didn’t care about, during the early stages. If this virus had not been introduced as a “Gay” virus, we could have saved lives. This footage, from personal AIDS victims that are no longer with us, once again will bring you to those last days. Some of it is graphic because, it is the early stages when they had very limited funding and education. Let me be truthful, AIDS Research went unnoticed by President Reagan for years. ACT-UP decided to protest.
The Art World decided to memorialize their dying community by the “AIDS Estate Project.” This virtual gallery is still active to today. With that being said, where and how can a disease come out of nowhere and kill thousands and later millions?Some believe it was a genetically contrived to lead millions to their graves. Why AIDS? Why in the 1980’s?
Once America was told it was from sexual interactions and unsafe bodily fluids being passed that caused the virus.
We think we know…
Some of us have heard the story of Patient Zero, Gaetan Dugas. He is known of the AIDS victim, that criminally transmitted the virus while employed as a flight attendant. Now, the question is how did he contract the disease? Some have said in Africa the meat and cannibalism, and bestiality were the cause of AIDS.
Either way there is not one definite answer how humans transmitted the virus. The first case of AIDS apparently now wasn’t Gaetan Dugas, because Robert Rayford contracted it in 1969 as a teenager. Gaetan and Robert didn’t know each other, so we can not be 100 percent accurate about Gaetan Dugas and him maliciously infecting people AIDs. Did the government administer AIDS? Why are some still searching for different strangers to sleep with, not knowing their last name or sexual history? AIDS didn’t leave our nation, it just changed the the primary carrier group, now the deaths and infections are from Urban men and women. One time is all it takes to recieve HIV,and the AIDS Activist that died fight to inform us on the dangers of reckless sexual activity. You don’t know who has AIDS and you increase your chances with promiscuity. I believe now, if someone will have sexual intercourse with so many partners,they already aware they have a disease or don’t love themselves enough to cherish their body and not become a statistic.
