Sex in an Epidemic

AIDS activist Jean Carlomusto directs this historical account of the varying social, sexual and political reactions to the disease's spread and the way it transformed how Americans thinks about sexual practices with the creation of the "safe sex" concept. Included is a look at the struggle of HIV educators and community groups to combat the apathy and fear that greeted the rise of AIDS, particularly on the part of lawmakers, who passed a bill prohibiting federal funding for any educational materials "condoning the homosexual lifestyle."
