A Time To Remember,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Longtime Companion [DVD] (DVD)
Back in the 80's the world declared a gay disease, HIV / AIDS, it was a time when worldwide gay communities feared an unknown evil disease that was taking so many lives and with no understanding as to what it was, or why was this happening and Predominately within the gay communities. Having nothing but theorys, about this Illness and fears, We all stood united against the world Prejudices and hatred towards the Gay Communities because of peoples own fears.
This film demonstrates truth and Accuracy about the plight of just how people all over the world had to fight for things and deal with, being given an undated death certificate, with nothing that could save them. We watched helplessly as our loved ones, family members were taken from us. AZT a highly toxic drug was the only source of medication that was available, there really wasn't anything else back then, except a bond and a love within the gay communities all over the world who supported and gave as much as they could to help one another in anyway they could.
A time to remember, how so many back then who lost their lives and with some who are still amongst us who are now long term surviors and companions in present day, who still face the chalenges of HIV.

Laughably rose tinted analyse of the early aids pandemic.A lot of homosexuals argued against the closing of bath houses,ridiculed and questioned why they should wear condoms.In my mind a lot of the spread of this disease was down to ignorant,irresponsible self righteous militant homosexuals.Read And The Band Played On by Randy Shilts.
