A Date to Remember

June 27, 1981 I remember very well because it was 2 days after I graduated from high school; I was heading off to college to be ‘pre-med’. I vaguely remember hearing about a disease or syndrome that affected young gay men. It seemed very mysterious and far removed from my life. It was not on any global or national agenda, nor were there faith based initiatives, celebrity spokespersons; there were no national public health campaigns with cheeky taglines; no one was signing up for bicycle races or walks for the cure to rally around. HIV/AIDS was a whisper; even The Artist could not say it out loud, it was “the big disease with a little name”. It was that scary.
