    Warning: this is one of the Guardian's 'long read' articles, but since both ME and AIDS came to prominence during the 80s (though obviously there were notable outbreaks of the latter previously) I thought it relevant to post here. The LGBT community obviously included mostly healthy people who could also take part in activism, especially given the homophobia of the authorities at the time.

    I highly recommend watching the documentary How to Survive a Plague by David France, too.

    Whereas ME patients' insights bring them scorn, slurs and accusations of terrorism. Maybe we're doing it wrong.:)
