“Powerful.” Lily Tomlin’s succinct thought on the cover of Body Counts ideally describes the book’s impact. Strub is an AIDS and LGBT activist, the founder of Poz magazine, U.S. Congressional candidate, producer of The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me, etc. etc. His memoir covers his personal and political life during the tumultuous AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and into the 90s. Seemingly present at all of the widely-publicized movements and protests, Straub name-drops so many well-known figures that the book feels like a gay version of Forrest Gump.
