WHEN AIDS STRIKES: THE NEW SCARLET LETTER. V.1, NO.- , 1992.




 

The Rubbers Bros., PO Box 431, Wilbraham, MA 01095-0431. ISBN

"AIDS has entered our society and has brought to its victims of today all the scorn and shame adultery evoked in the days of Puritan America and Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter." "The time is now to change the scarlet A for AIDS to a clear A for AWARE, and stop this killer." This small newsletter is intended to help educate everyone. The articles are brief and to the point covering such areas as teenage awareness, what parents should know, what teens think about sex, and AIDS and minorities. There are also some good, more extensive articles: "Ten years and still no cure: A decade of AIDS," "AIDS epidemic hitting mothers & children," "Federal AIDS spending to be in billions," "The global AIDS epidemic,""African women are forbidden to say no to AIDS," "Helping teens deal with being gay or lesbian," "Golden gays support elderly AIDS sufferers," "Latex condoms best protection against AIDS," and "Race is on for a blood substitute to help fight AIDS." This is well-written little newsletter that is available in bulk to be distributed at schools and other areas where teenagers may frequent. Although some parents may become upset with the Rubbers Bros. Reading Club, this is an excellent source of down-to-earth information for young people. (H. Robert Malinowsky)
