New York: ACT UP, . Offset. 11 x 17 in. Framed to 14 ¾ x 20 ½ in. Near fine. Item #6381
A simple and straightforwardly designed poster from ACT UP New York suggesting the continued need for ACT UP and imploring readers to join the organization if they wanted to continue fighting for gay rights. The poster reads, “You can’t wear a red ribbon if you’re dead. You can’t serve in the military if you’re dead. You can’t march in the Saint Patrick’s Day parade if you’re dead. You can’t register as domestic partners if you’re dead.” A clear and concise piece of AIDS activism taking aim at the assimilationist gay class of the 1990s.
