Memories of My Gay Brothers
I could never have imagined what the future had in store for me and my Castro Street friends when I began a memory book in 1985. This is my memoir of more than ninety people I knew in San Francisco who died of AIDS. It was the decimation of a thriving culture in just over a decade. Who cares? We all should.
