they didn't know what AIDS was or even have a name for it until late 1983. I remember, because one of my 'men' got was in the hospital in Houston, dying, and no one knew what it was until 3 weeks before he died, 20 Nov 83. And then we weren't sure, and weren't sure what caused it, or how it was transmitted. In fact it was basically unknown, and we didn't even begin to understand it, even a little, until 1984.

Didn't they still call it "the gay cancer" back then?
