The Other Pandemic

Coming June 6, 2023. Pre-order today!

By: Lynn Curlee

We speak their names so they shall not be forgotten.

Before COVID-19 made "pandemic" a household word in 2020, there was the AIDS pandemic of the 1980s and 1990s. Author Lynn Curlee explores the parallels and differences as he recounts life in New York and Los Angeles when this disease silently took hold of the gay community. As it became a full-blown public health crisis, Curlee watched in horror as HIV/AIDS, divisive politics, and discrimination cost many people their lives. 

With honesty and heart, Curlee tells the stories of the many friends and loved ones that he lost to the disease, including his own life partner. LGBTQ+ rights and access to health care are still under threat today. The Other Pandemic is a stark reminder of how history speaks to the present, and this window to the past is a valuable tool for understanding our current cultural landscape.
