The COVID-19 pandemic dominating daily life across the United States is a grim reminder of how the HIV/AIDS epidemic impacted the lives of so many in the LGBTQ+ community in the latter half of the 1980s. HIV/AIDS had a lasting effect on the LGBTQ+ community, galvanizing social activism and shaping FDA and healthcare policies even as it left death and sorrow in its wake.
This panel will offer a retrospective on legislation and law from the HIV/AIDS era, discuss ways in which COVID-19 is currently affecting LGBTQ+ individuals, and draw lessons from the past to the present.
