A poster distributed by ACT UP New York with the slogan “Silence=Death.”

The text on the bottom of the poster reads: “Why is Reagan silent about AIDS? What is really going on the Center for Disease Control, the Federal Drug Administration, and the Vatican? Gays and lesbians are not expendable... Use your power...Vote...Boycott...Defend yourselves...Turn anger, fear, pain into action.” A pink triangle was the symbol used to mark gays in Nazi concentration camps.
