Cultural References
This episode highlights the Aids scare and the effect it had on the gay community. It doesn't deal with the mis-conception of the time that it was gay disease only but chooses to focus on the community hit hardest. That being the homo-sexual male community and the efforts of some to spread warning about unprotected sex.
