"The mass media have played a key role in constructing public understandings of the epidemic. In the majority of instances, HIV-related disease has been presented as a condition affecting social and/or demographic minorities -- groups whose exceptional behaviour has put them at special risk. Yet at the same time, HIV and AIDS are said to threaten us all: be we heterosexual, lesbian or gay, be we young or somewhat older; be we of minority or majority ethnic status."
