StoryWhen one thinks of revolutionaries, the first names that come to mind are Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King Jr., just to name a few.
Richard Berkowitz, in a different way, can be viewed in the same light. A revolutionary gay S&M sex worker turned AIDS activist in the 1980's, Berkowitz' incomparable contribution to the invention of safe sex has never been aptly credited.
Perhaps that could change over time; as Sex Positive takes aim at the hazards-from the various STD's to HIV and AIDS-that come from unsafe sex, lessons that may not be known to the younger generation.
