AIDS Action Committee’s Safe Company flyers (ca. 1990)

In the 1980s, AIDS became a threat to the gay community. The AIDS Action Committee formed in Boston in 1983 to help people with AIDS and HIV. One of its programs, The Safe Company, targeted the sexual lifestyles of gay men. The Safe Company provided peer-based education to remind gay men to practice safe sex consistently. Its messages were sex-positive, emphasizing that safe sex could also be satisfying sex. From the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts records.
