Summary "In Salt Lake City, Utah, the religious monoculture severely complicated the AIDS crisis, where patients received no support from, or were cast into exile by, the political, religious, and medical communities. Further, Mormon culture encouraged gay men to marry women and have a family to cure themselves of their 'affliction,' counsel which led to secret affairs and accidental marital transmissions of HIV. In the entire state there was only one doctor to serve all HIV/AIDS patients. This is the story of Dr. Kristen Ries and her partner (in both medicine and life), Maggie Snyder, and their fight to save the lives of a maligned population everyone else seemed willing to just let die"--Container.
