I had never let Goldin's images sink into my brain before. They are beautiful and devastating, in a way that, I think, no one in todays cultural climate would even be able to capture.

"The glamour of self-destruction had worn off with real death among us. We have been through so much and have lost so many close friends. I still believe in sexual liberation, that sex is an affirmation of life. That desire for intimacy and connection is fully positive and AIDS has not destroyed my belief in that."
