At first glance, it seems like any other high school classroom. Students are scribbling notes in science workbooks and a teacher hovers over them, correcting mistakes. Blackboards list assignments, and posters on the wall mark the achievements of blacks and Latinos. Suddenly, one pupil clutches his stomach and complains about nausea from a dose of AZT, a drug used to combat AIDS. A friend nods sympathetically across the room, and the teacher inquires gently about the boy's condition.

In December of 1989, AIDS and abortion rights activists invaded St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City to protest Cardinal John J. O'Connor's efforts to defeat AIDS prevention programs, and to deny women access to safe and legal abortions. This demonstration, along with demonstrations in California--where Catholic churches were desecrated with red paint spelling out anti-Catholic and pro-safe sex/pro-abortion messages--began a loud and often angry discussion about the tactics used to protest the church's policies and political activities.

The 17-year-old and his friends had become unwitting combatants on one of the most volatile fronts of the gay rights struggle: America's schools. Some of John's classmates printed up T-shirts proclaiming "No Gays."
