The Confusing and At-Times Counterproductive 1980s Response to the AIDS Epidemic
Image description: Three 1980s AIDS awareness posters. The first features two white men, one of them undressing, with the words “You won’t believe what we like to wear in bed” (to encourage condom use). The second shows two shirtless black men lying together and says “If you really love him… Rubbers - Every Time!” The last one has a white teenage boy with the caption “AIDS Is Scary, But A Zit Is Real. Right?”
These are from Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics and Culture, a traveling & online exhibit by the National Library of Medicine on AIDS in the 1980s and since.
