Politics, Sex, AIDS And Survival

Greg Wass
New York, 1987

Iowan Sean Strub has lead a distinguished career as a gay rights activist and advocate for people with HIV/AIDS.  He founded POZ Magazine, designed to serve those living with the disease, a community he knows very well since he has been living with HIV since 1980.

Host Charity Nebbe sits down with Strub to discuss his new book, "Body Counts: A Memoir of Politics, Sex, AIDS and Survival."  It details how Strub came of age in the political world of Washington, D.C. and New York City while at the same time coming to terms with his sexuality and then later his diagnosis of HIV.

This program originally aired February 20, 2014.
