I don't know Velvet Goldmine but having lived in NY in 1984 I can vouch for AIDS having been a big issue here by then. We, along with SF, were a center of the epidemic.
However, I think it's just not terrifically sexy to talk about AIDS with your OTP--so people just pretend it isn't there.
Thanks. That's a very interesting thought. I hadn't considered it that way. Maybe because I just don't get the whole OTP thing. But I bet you're right that that's a factor for some.
Thanks for stopping in!
