  4. This would be highly relevant to me as I lived in S.F. in 1985 at about the height of the AIDS crisis.

  6. I might see it. But, there are so memories it might bring roaring to the surface again, maybe I'll pass.

  7. There was no AIDS epidemic. There was an epidemic of drugs and promiscuity. Learn to live moderate lives and refrain from promiscuity.

    AIDS is not a gay illness. You are not victims of something you can't control. Control your zippers, people.

  10. Adam: Actually, there was, and is, an HIV/AIDS epidemic, the sufferers unfortunately belonging to the very large majority of human beings who are not naturally immune to infection by HIV. Very promiscuous people who were so immune have escaped infection altogether; others have had only a single sexual encounter leading to infection.

  12. 30-years later and people's ignorance still shows up in the comments section. Disappointing. And by the by, it's a global pandemic and not an epidemic.

  13. Control your judgement Adam.

  14. This film should be good.

  15. @ Adam

    How about you try controlling your ignorance and stigma campaign. Both of which are bigger epidemics, and far more damaging.

  16. Adam I hope you get AIDS. There, I said it.
