Abstract (Summary)

This thesis examines the role of art produced as a response to the AIDS epidemic. This study calls into question the role art played as a critical public pedagogy as well as how it renegotiated sexuality, kinship, and activism within the gay community. To accomplish this, artistic artifacts produced at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic are analyzed using the lens of queer theory and critical public pedagogy. Overall, I conclude that art is an effective form of critical public pedagogy by offering several ways to reimagine reality and possibility as well as mobilize masses to create change.
