Newsweek on Stonewall 2.0

This piece on took me back to my earlier days, literally in the lead of the story:

It was October 1988, the height of the AIDS crisis, and Michelangelo Signorile was organizing a protest. For six months, he and fellow ACT UP members had met weekly, strategizing and planning. The idea: storm the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, accused of dragging its feet on approving treatments for HIV.

Read the whole thing. I was interviewed for the story and it's a pretty good piece about how we organized back then, and how the movement is organizing now. And it ends with my thoughts on where it all might be going.
