    The gay plague got covered only because it finally had struck people who counted people who were not homosexuals 1 This is an absolutely astounding piece of investigative journalism Shilts has dug deep into the history of the AIDs crisis from its very early origins in Africa being passed around by a lack of medical hygiene to the bath houses of New York and San Francisco He has provided a comprehensive horrific history of the disease its victims and the uncaring government who allowed it to spread out of control2 Shilts is an AMAZING writer I'm interested in the history of diseases but then I'm interested in the history of a lot of things Technology art religion democracy being interested in something is one thing being able to hold my attention for 600 pages of non fiction is quite anotherBut Shilts did not have a problem His writing style feels almost like you are reading a dark dramatic novel as he paints a vivid picture of every scene It's so very compelling This simple truth seems obvious and yet it is easy to forget amid a sea of fantasy pageturners reality is so much haunting and terrible than fiction3 This book exposes the homophobia overt or otherwise that allowed AIDs to become a disaster Homophobia is not surprising to me in this often shitty world we live in and yet I still managed to be shocked at the way medical professionals government officials and the media repeatedly failed the gay victims at the centre of this crisisWe have teams around the world whose job it is to quickly isolate and stop infectious diseases before they can become epidemics Shilts uses Legion Fever or Legionnaires' disease as an example When there was an outbreak of Legion Fever in 1976 the government poured money into it and the CDC acted quickly to stop its spread However AIDs was not offered the same treatmentDespite the fact that people were dying from AIDs and it was spreading much quickly many medical professionals refused to acknowledge it the media would not talk about gay sex and some people even outright suggested it was the wrath of god punishing gay men for immoral behaviour It is heartbreaking how many gay men as well as others were allowed to die because of a fear of the word homosexual What must it be like to be diagnosed with a disease and discover that the government refuses to care about finding the cause or a cure for it? I can't even imagine It is horrific4 I recommend this book to everyone It's a fast paced fascinating and awful read that looks at a very recent area of history If there was ever a perfect argument against bigotry it is this disastrous way the AIDs epidemic was handled in its wake and the millions of people who have died because of itI also recommend checking out the movie The Normal Heart for a visual experience of this historyBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube
