The HIV/AIDS epidemic has been a major catastrophe for gay communities. In less than two decades, the disease has profoundly changed the lives of gay men and lesbians. Not just a biological and viral agent, HIV has become an opportunistic social invader, reshaping communities and the distribution of wealth, altering the social careers of gay professionals and the patterns of entry into gay and lesbian life, and giving birth to groups like ACT UP and Queer Nation.

The distinguished contributors to this volume discuss the ways HIV/AIDS has changed collective and individual identities, as well as lives, of gay men and lesbians, and how these alterations have changed our perceptions of the epidemic. They cover such topics as the impact of the epidemic on small towns, cultural barriers to AIDS prevention, gay youth and intergenerational relations, and the roles of lesbians in AIDS organizations. This collection provides compelling insights into the new communities among gay men and lesbians and the new kinds of identities and relationships that are emerging from the social and cultural ferment engendered by HIV/AIDS.

Contributors include Barry D. Adam, Lourdes Arguelles, Rafael Miguel Diaz, John H. Gagnon, Gilbert Herdt, Gregory M. Herek, Nan D. Hunter, Peter M. Nardi, John L. Peterson, Anne Rivero, Gayle S. Rubin, Beth E. Schneider, and Nancy E. Stoller.

From Library Journal:

Much has been written on the medical aspects of the AIDS pandemic, yet relatively little it seems on the social and cultural impacts of the disease on gays and lesbians in America. Out of a California conference in late 1992 that dealt with these issues came this volume. Written mostly by professors of sociology and psychology from U.S. universities, these essays cover topics such as the impact of AIDS on familial and personal relationships within the gay community, the reintegration of spiritual concerns among gay ethnic populations, and the simultaneous demonization and mainstreaming of homosexuality as a political issue. Fascinating, if academic, reading on a topic that has been significantly under-reported, this collection is recommended for larger public, academic, and special collections.?Jeffery Ingram, Newport P.L., Ore.
