Today is World AIDS Remembrance Day. With ‘How To Survive A Plague’ being released, this year is perhaps even more a fitting time to remember and reflect on the origins of the modern AIDS movement and remind ourselves that the success of the treatment cause was also the root of the modern LGBT civil rights movement. Today is also the public honorartion of the heroes and heroines of a time without which, today would be impossible. A kiss and a salute in equal measure. And still, silence equals death. We Remember.
