Overview

The world has been living with HIV/AIDS for 40 years. Today, we know the virus' dangers, how to protect ourselves, and how to treat it. But when the epidemic first began in the 1980s, nothing was known about HIV/AIDS. A positive diagnosis was a guaranteed death sentence.

History 101 is a documentary series that offers quick and fact-driven overviews on a range of subjects. From fast food to feminism, the series uses archival footage and engaging infographics to concisely offer lessons and introductions to its topics.

History 101: AIDS delves into the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, clearly explaining exactly what the virus does to our bodies, and how it's spread. The documentary goes on to show the fear and hate-driven discrimination the LGBTQ+ community faced in the wake of the AIDS crisis, and the inspiring ways in which the community fought for their rights.
