About the Book

In the mid 1980s Arthur Kahn worked as a volunteer at the Gay Men's Health Crisis, an organization leading the fight against AIDS epidemic. He subsequently conducted interviews in several countries regarding AL-721, a medication greeted as a possible cure for the disease. The result was Aids, The Winter War: A Testing of America published in 1993. His next undertaking seemed to follow naturally, interviewing some 60 New York City gay activists--gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and a transvestite, people making positive contributions in varied aspects of society. The result is The Many Faces of Gay.
