dc.description.abstractDewing Hall was vandalized with homophobic graffiti on June 1, 1986. This particular image shows "AIDS is your punishment!" written in chalk on a door. Other words were written above this but were smeared and are illegible. In 1986 AIDS, or acquired immunodeficiency disorder, was a new disease that scientists were racing to understand. Initially it was called GRID, gay-related immune deficiency, because of the high rates of infection among gay men. This led to fear and discrimination against homosexuals as can be seen in this graffiti.en_US
