Voices of Protest Amidst a Pandemic

“We are entering time of uncertainty and doubt about survival… We demand that the answers to this mysterious illness will not be held hostage by the individuals and institutions that hold power over our lives…. We will not allow ourselves to be victimized or blamed for what we are experiencing.” Harley McMillen, 1983

Among recently posted videos are a speech on AIDS by Howard Brown Memorial Clinic Executive Director Harley McMillen at the 1983 Pride Parade rally and the multi-day, multi-location 1990 ACT-UP demonstration which culminated in the unfurling of a protest banner on City Hall.
