Program Synopsis

Safer-Sex Censorship
Transportation Committee Hearing


AIDS Community Television #58
originally telecast 2/8/94

Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) initiated a safer-sex subway advertisement campaign aimed at lesbian, gay and straight teens encouraging condom use.

New York City Council Member Noach Dear, who heads the Council's Transportation Committee, is spear-heading an effort by several religious and "family values" groups to bar public-service announcements on subways and busses that they deem "immoral" or "obscene".

This program documents the worst of City Government and the threats to AIDS prevention resulting from religious dogma and homophobia.
