Can someone help me find this dispatch about HIV/AIDS? August 9, 2015 11:12 AM   Subscribe

Can someone help me find an article about HIV/AIDS that was linked on the blue? It was written by an at-the-time healthy person during the AIDS crisis, posted publicly (possibly a newspaper column or a transcription of a radio dispatch), with a clear sense of urgency and a call to action, primarily directed at other gays. It mentions being at a hospital and taking care of sick folks. It tries to dispel rumors about HIV/AIDS transmission and criticizes the government (maybe the CDC specifically) for inaction. The webpage itself mostly black text and a white background, no flashy user interface. That's all I can remember. I've tried searching myself for many hours with no luck. Thank you.

Different article, but same author. It was Larry Kramer's 1112 and Counting, specifically linked here. The article and the comment by Dip Flash about it "scorch[ing] off the page, even 31 years later" left an impression.

Thank you, MonkeyToes!
