This month, Windy City Times started a 9-month series on AIDS@30, in conjunction with the AIDS Foundation of Chicago.
The series began with a timeline that will jog your memory if you’re of a certain age, and surprise you if you aren’t.
I found myself reading it, thinking to myself, “I forgot about that” or “I remember him.”
You’ll find statistics, photos and remembrances. It has already brought back a lot of memories for me.
Publisher Tracy Baim was nice enough to ask me to contribute to the series, and I will post when that guest column appears.
Visit the Windy City Times website, www.windycitymediagroup.com, and click on “AIDS@30”.
The AIDS epidemic is 30 years old, and sadly, not over yet. Through this series, you’ll learn a little about how and why, and more about the people on the front lines: working for effective treatment and prevention, and someday, a cure.
