Act up is watching, 1989

This photo came from one of thousands of demonstrations nationwide, reminding officials that activists were watching. ACT UP (The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) was founded in March 1987. As of 2012, ACT UP chapters in nearly every major city continued to champion for rights for people with AIDS.
