Surviving & Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Culture
Why there’s a connection between sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS, 1980s
The connection might be even simpler than this poster described: AIDS is a disease that can be transmitted sexually. However, the text of this poster from American Responds to AIDS also made a far stronger connection between having sex and contracting a sexually transmitted disease. While this linked unprotected sex with sickness, it did not necessarily empower the viewer to engage in new safer behaviors, rather it sent them to a hotline.
