            6. The title of Shilts’ book would seem to refer to the Gay Freedom Day Parade in 1980 (p. 12).

            7. See, for example, the review by W. A. Blattner in the single-topic issue on AIDS in Scientific American, October 1988, pp. 124–7.

            8. The reference here is to the Duesberg myth. This myth relates to a recently published book based on the research of a biochemist, Duesberg, which advocates the view that HIV is not the cause of AIDS. It has been called the Duesberg myth because evidence has revealed innumerable inaccuracies and distortions. See, for example, ‘Scientists denounce “myths” in AIDS book’, New Scientist, 1662, 29 April 1989, pp. 6–7 and D. Campbell, ‘AIDS: The Duesberg myth’, New Scientist, 1662, 6 May 1989, pp. 42–3.
