Mortal Secrets: Truth and Lies in the Age of AIDS

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2006 - Spring


by Robert Klitzman, M.D. ’85, and Ronald Bayer, Ph.D. (The Johns Hopkins University Press) The authors provide a portrait of moral, social and psychological decision making by drawing on interviews and testimonies from more than 70 gay men and women, intravenous drug users, sex workers, bisexual men and heterosexual men and women. For those who are HIV-positive, decisions about disclosure of their diagnosis make them confront intimate questions about truth, lies, sex and trust.
