Gideon Mendel’s The Ward

Memories from the heart of the Aids crisis shows true love in a time of terrible tragedy.

These heartbreaking and incredibly moving images show the affection and love shown during the height of the Aids crisis. Photographer Gideon Mendel’s project The Ward began in 1993 when he spent a number of weeks on the Charles Bell wards in London’s Middlesex Hospital. All the patients on the ward were dying with the knowledge that there was no cure for the disease. During this time antiretroviral medications were not available and patients on the ward faced the prospect of an early death.

nonbinary people come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, from all backgrounds and all walks of life, from all the different places in the world. there is not only one nonbinary experience but millions of potential nonbinary experiences.

we should celebrate diversity among nonbinary identities, not shun it.

We are starting a new project here at Making Queer History. Since we are working to expand our research materials, we will be enlisting our audiences help.

Basically we are doing an “adopt a book” system that will allow our audience to help us grow our library. It will be set up so that if anyone wants to send in a donation to the project that money would go to buying a queer history book off of the projects wishlist. And when you donate towards a book your name (and possibly a message of your choice) gets written on the title page.

If you want to be a part of this program, send in a donation here. We will also ask you to add a message along with the donation saying 

“Foster a Library Donation
[Name]
[If you want it to go towards a specific book off of the wishlist add the title and author]
[Message of your choice]”

If you are only able to donate a little other names will on the page as well and I can take pictures and post updates on the books on the project’s Instagram.
