            Early in the 1980s AIDS epidemic, six gay activists created one of the most iconic and lasting images that would come to symbolize a movement: a protest poster of a pink triangle with the words Silence = Death. The graphic and the slogan still resonate today, often used-and misus...ed-to brand the entire movement. Cofounder of the collective Silence = Death and member of the art collective Gran Fury, Avram Finkelstein tells the story of how his work and other protest artwork associated with the early years of the pandemic were created. In writing about art and AIDS activism, the formation of collectives, and the political process, Finkelstein reveals a different side of the traditional HIV/AIDS history, told twenty-five years later, and offers a creative toolbox for those who want to learn how to save lives through activism and making art.

            Hold Tight Gently: Michael Callen, Essex Hemphill, and the Struggle for Survival (Hardback)

            In December 1995, the FDA approved the release of protease inhibitors, the first effective treatment for AIDS. For countless people, the drug offered a reprieve from what had been a death sentence; for others, it was too late. In the United States alone, over 318,000 people, most... of them gay men, were dead from AIDS-related complications--among them the singer Michael Callen and the poet Essex Hemphill. Meticulously researched and evocatively told, The Battlefield of AIDS is historian Martin Duberman's poignant memorial to those lost to AIDS and to two unsung heroes of the early years of the epidemic. Callen, a white gay Midwesterner who moved to New York, became a leading figure in the organized effort to fight the disease; Hemphill, an African-American gay man in Washington, D.C., contributed to the black gay and lesbian flowering of the Second Harlem Renaissance. Both men died at the age of 38. A profound exploration of the intersection of race, sexuality, class, and identity during the AIDS epidemic's bleakest years, The Battlefield of AIDS captures both a generation struggling to cope with the deadly disease and the extraordinary refusal of two men to give in to despair.
