Body Counts Summary · eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Hrouded in shame When the AIDS epidemic hit in the early 1980s Strub was living in New York and soon found himself attending “ funerals than birthday parties” Scared and angry he turned to radical activism to combat discrimination and demand research Strub takes you through his own diagnosis and inside ACT UP the organization that transformed a stigmatized cause into one of the defining political movements of our time From the New York of Studio 54 and Andy Warhol’s Factory to the intersection of politics and burgeoning LGBT and AIDS movemen. The book is an autobiography about Stub s career as a Washington politico in the 1970s and New York activist in the 1980s A journey of self discovery Strub s life also mirrored the lives of a generation of gay men who came from the sticks to the big city just as gay culture changed because of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s Truth be told I wanted to really like this book It is after all an important story that needs to be toldHowever Strub s narrative is weighed down by the constant name dropping as he manages to be everywhere that is important in gay history Like other gay authors Edmund white comes to mind this need to detail important names and places hinders the overall structure of the book resulting in poor writing that constantly moves between time and space This structure becomes repetitive and at times annoying for a reader who wants to understand Strub s journey The book needed some heavy editing to help smooth out the story that Strub is trying to tell At the same time the book reads like an apologia and justification for the choices Strub made in his life This sadly occurs too often in autobiographies However behind these structural flaws is a fascinating story that needs to be told There are people who appear in Strub s narrative that piued my curiosity wanting to know about them and who they were In addition the gay and lesbian movement was already drifting away from its foundation as a sexual liberation movement toward a focus on rights and assimilation We re just like everyone else was the mantra as we began to focus on legal reform and mainstream acceptance 129Like so many gay men of his generation he was fighting a sense of unbridgeable difference161 This speaks to me volumes The shared idea that as individual gay men we feel constantly outside a feeling we carry with us sometimes as a burden Even if Michael didn t rant or obsess about politics the way I did he had a uiet rage like many gay men That collective rage grew with the death toll and fueled the rise of LGBT and AIDS activism 162Yet as it became widely understood that new treatments enable us to live much longer we increasingly became defined not by our expected death but by our potential to infect others as viral vectors As we lived longer the criminal justice and public health systems have come to view us even define us as inherently dangerous 396CuriosityAlan Baron a gay Washington behind the scenes playerThe Ramrod shootings Hugh Steers Vidal s nephew a talented painterBarton Benes an artist in relicsFebruary 1997 Lazarus Syndrome in NYT about gay men surviving HIV February 1981 article in POZ about criminalization the relationship between criminalization and managed healthcare needs to be explored
