Thank you for this summary. There's far too much history-rewriting for gay men who could be role-models etc and its good to read some historical facts presented plainly.

PAPER lost countless friends, staffers, and subjects to the epidemic over the years. It was a hugely important and personal part of the magazine then, and as such, our earliest issues serve as time capsules of gay life in the city in the '80s and early '90s.
