‘Whose Streets? Our Streets!: New York City, 1980-2000’ at Bronx Documentary Center, New York

Dona Ann McAdams, Manhattan, January 23, 1991: “ACT UP ‘Day of Desperation’ protest at Grand Central Station. The protest was staged in response to President George H. W. Bush spending billions of dollars on the Gulf War while claiming there was no money for much-needed increases in AIDS programs. On January 23rd ACT UP staged actions throughout the five boroughs, culminating in a large action at Grand Central.”
