Description

The Mormon Church’s political and social influence made receiving care for HIV/AIDS in 1980s Salt Lake City staggeringly difficult. Enter Kristin Ries and Maggie Snyder, two crusading healthcare professionals who served as the area’s only means of medical support. Engulfed in Utah’s particular brand of moral hysteria and anti-gay rhetoric, these two women, partnering with nuns, compassionately and heroically go about their work serving a much-closeted population ignored and unwanted by the conservative culture around them.
