|AIDS in D.C.|
History Project has assembled a number of resources focusing on AIDS in
metropolitan Washington, DC. AIDS devastated the local GLBT community
and sparked a second revolution of activism in the second half of the 1980s
as the community struggled in the face of indifference, hostility, and
underfunding to take care of its own and bury its own. Though the
city government was more supportive than most other city and state governments
of the time, DC's GLBT community still struggled to first understand, then
respond to, epidemic in its midst.
