Subculture and HIV/AIDS Epidemic

subculture is the fraternity that is represented in my aids quilt by Micheal Burchill. Apparently he was a apart of a university fraternity that was a huge part of his life where it was on his quilt.

the relationship between the subculture embodied  in the quilt and the HIV/AIDS epidemic is the homosexual man that was apart of a fraternity had been apart of the AIDS epidemic. It could have been a homosexual frat of that the culture of college allowed him to contract this deadly disease. Him furthering his education being apart of the college culture and atmosphere could have allowed him to contract aids and be apart of this epidemic.
