Fag Hags, Divas and Moms: The Legacy of Straight Women in the AIDS Community
Victoria Noe, author
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 recognized? Drawing on personal interviews and archival research, Fag 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.
