6. See Jan Zita Grover, “Visible Lesions: Images of People With AIDS,” Afterimage 17:1 (Summer 1989): 10-16. Grover provides a timeline of AIDS representation from 1981-1988, arguing how gay men, gay media and gay service organizations were the first to respond to the damning images of AIDS found in the mainstream media, creating instead, images of AIDS with which gay people could identify “because of shared history and concerns.”
