And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic by Randy Shilts

By the time Rock Hudsons death in 1985 alerted all America to the danger of the AIDS epidemic, the disease had spread across the nation, killing thousands of people and emerging as the greatest health crisis of the 20th century. America faced a troubling question: What happened? How was this epidemic allowed to spread so far before it was taken seriously? In answering these questions, Shilts weaves the disparate threads into a coherent story, pinning down every evasion and contradiction at the highest levels of the medical, political, and media establishments.

Shilts shows that the epidemic spread wildly because the federal government put budget ahead of the nations welfare; health authorities placed political expediency before the public health; and scientists were often more concerned with international prestige than saving lives. Against this backdrop, Shilts tells the heroic stories of individuals in science and politics, public health and the gay community, who struggled to alert the nation to the enormity of the danger it faced. And the Band Played On is both a tribute to these heroic people and a stinging indictment of the institutions that failed the nation so badly.

The members of the Canby High School marching band had been preparing for weeks, making sure their timing was just right, their instruments tuned correctly and their marching steps perfectly in sync. But when they showed up at the high school Saturday night to make their way to Portland to compete in the Starlight Parade, a quirky procession that drew hundreds of thousands to Downtown Portland , there was a problem. The bus that was supposed to take them there was nowhere to be found. We had to call it off.

The brainchild of Westbury man Andrew Jordan, the Diversity marching band was put together in readiness for the annual parade which celebrates the culture of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender LGBT people.
