Vintage Photo: AIDS Protest Poster, NYC, September 1988

I was surprised to see this AIDS epidemic protest poster among my early photographs.  This poster notes the slow response of the Regan administration to the AIDS epidemic. Interesting to note that the same players active in AIDS research back in the 1980s are active in the fight against COVID today.  The slow response to the AIDS epidemic primarily affected gay people and IV drug abusers therefore it was not important to the Regan administration.
