Privacy Considerations

While we were researching and curating this exhibition we were highly sensitive to and conscious of people's rights to privacy. Just because someone was an outspoken activist does not mean that they have forfeited their right to privacy. This led us to decide to only use names of people who have been public ACT UP members whose names have been previously published or have participated in the creation of media in which they spoke with their name attributed to them. Before including people's names we double-checked to see if they already had an Internet presence that associated them with AIDS activism. We do not want to inadvertantly out anyone. Please contact us at herstories@prattinfoschool.nyc if you have appeared in this exhibition and would like your participation to be taken out of this narrative. In order to not infringe on privacy, screenshots were taken carefully so that people’s faces were not visible. There were many women without whom none of these necessary governmental changes would have occurred. Taking this into consideration and wanting to err on the side of not infringing on anyone's privacy, we decided to only quote people and use names when attribution was necessary.
