BIG PHOTOSETS FOREVER FOR THEY ARE MUCH HARDER TO IGNORE / a lot of these don’t have hi-res versions available, but i still want to post them
This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.
Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall. The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.
queer politics aren’t all hrc t-shirts and shiny lobbying. So many people have already forgotten this extremely recent history.
The person with the jacket is David Wojnarowicz.

What happened to them?
One grew up to be a power-hungry megalomaniac who tried to take over Earth when he couldn’t have Asgard.
The other spent decades undergoing brainwashing and mental conditioning to ensure that he didn’t even know his own name, much less where his loyalties lay. His capturers turned him into a weapon
Loki chose to be a bad guy.
Bucky was turned into a weapon without his consent, and then the one time he actively fought against his brainwashing- by engaging in a secret relationship with Natasha - his captors punished him to the extent that he literally became an object, a tool to them, kept in stasis except for the short periods they needed him to kill.
