Randy Shilts was a San Francisco-based journalist and author. He received nationwide fame with his book, And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic (1980–85), which was published in 1987 and won the Stonewall Book Award. It offered a detailed account of the early days of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. Shilts died in 1994 from AIDS-related complications. Shortly before his death, he told The New York Times in an interview, “HIV is certainly character-building. It’s made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I’d rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character.”
