ACT UP New York

As is known by anyone who's been involved in AIDS or queer liberation activism -- or even just read a newspaper in the last decade -- ACT UP is the real thing, taking the war against AIDS and homophobia head-on through direct action tactics. The ACT UP federation has had its ups and downs, but if this web site is any indication, the New York group is still confronting the patriarchal state and medical industry bent on letting the AIDS crisis continue to take more lives. "SILENCE=DEATH," so ACT UP has made sure to maintain a loud, straightforward site definitely worth a browse. Includes streaming videos (RealPlayer required) and tons of historical/informational documents, and is personalized enough to keep a human face on an issue often overshadowed by shocking figures and body counts.
