An incredible amount of emotion...in such a short space of time.

Astounding. Really, astounding.

Stefan Lynch was raised by gay parents in the early eighties. He was cared for and loved by a group of adults, largely gay men, who he called his "aunties". Stefan remembers the succession of AIDS-related illnesses in his family, including the death of his father in '91. Even in the face of terrible sickness and loss, his aunties showed him how to survive and care for one another.
