Sad tragic look at lgbtq history
21 June 2019 | by kalithorSee all my reviews

Very well done document, you don't need to be from there country to feel there pain and suffering. Why does no one ever talk about the media in this era and there terrible handling of the AIDS crisis, for no reason should have it ever been labeled a gay disease. They made a target out of alot of innocent people they should have just said it was sexuality transmitted and left it at that I was a victim of hate crimes before they were actually called that so the Police were little to no help. We have come along way with our struggle . Have a great day💋
