(p.121) Epilogue
Evidence of Being

Darius Bost

University of Chicago Press

This epilogue revisits some of the book’s major arguments by analyzing a photograph taken by black gay activist Joseph Beam, alongside a poem that Other Countries co-founder Daniel Garrett wrote in response to the photograph. It considers the ethical stakes of bearing witness to the 1980s and 1990s as a renaissance of black gay culture rather than focusing solely on the communal trauma and loss associated with the early era of the AIDS epidemic.

Keywords:   Daniel Garrett, Joseph Beam, HIV/AIDS, ethics, photography
