AIDS Poster Collection

This poster series is part of the University of Minnesota's Tretter Collection. The posters presented here represent a global sampling of materials and posters produced concerning the HIV/AIDS crisis. Many of the posters were created as part of different prevention/awareness programs and distributed between the mid-1980s and the mid-1990s. Although most materials relate in some way to the LGBT community - there are posters addressing issues of HIV/AIDS for a number of different communities and from different perspectives. Among the most common issues addressed are: safer sex practices, condom use, information distribution, respect (of oneself and one's partner) and risks associated with drug use.
