AIDS pushed everything back


Twiggy recalled " pushed everything back 10 or 15 years, the way we were related to in the street, the abuse was always AIDS related, people were frightened and confused but it didn't stop people going out and copping off, personally it didn't make that much difference to me (I wasn't getting that much sex anyway because of the way I looked!!). Until you knew someone who died, maybe 8 or 10 years later, I started attending funerals, then it hit home though even then I thought, 'if your number's up...... '. People were having safe sex but in the last ten years they are less cautious. There are 'bare backing' parties, videos, groups etc. and even people who are specifically out there looking to become infected, which I don't understand!"
