The AIDS epidemic swept through the nation at the beginning of the 1980’s, and major cities like Los Angeles, with a large gay population, saw rates of opportunistic infections skyrocket amongst otherwise healthy men. ACT UP (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power) Los Angeles was officially formed in 1987, and they took to the streets to passionately fight for a group that is had everything on the line. Many of their demonstrations targeted public institutions like the CDC, FDA, and in the Republican party. Inclusion at the community level lead to many of ACT UP’s successes in combating AIDS at a national scale.
