The history of the AIDS epidemic has largely been told from the perspective of gay men: their losses, struggles, and contributions. But what about women - in particular, straight women? Not just Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Diana, but thousands whose accomplishments have never been realized?
Drawing on personal interviews and archival research, F*g Hags, Divas and Moms: The Legacy of Straight Women in the AIDS Community is the first book to share the stories of women around the world, throughout the epidemic. Victoria Noe assures their place in women's history, for their determination to educate and advocate, to end the epidemic once and for all.
