Activism Against AIDS: At the Intersection of Sexuality, Race, Gender, and Class
AIDS has claimed the lives of more than 400,000 people in the United States, becoming the focus of intense social activism. Brett Stockdill reveals that people living with HIV/AIDS are often multiply oppressed - women of color, for example - and explores how interlocking oppressions fragment activism and thus impede AIDS prevention and intervention. Demonstrating that a unified approach to issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality can most effectively combat the AIDS epidemic, he highlights the critical link between social analysis and public policy.
