I can still vividly recall my absolute fury on seeing this appalling LIFE magazine cover in a grocery store in the summer of 1985.
The editors might just as well have written, “Now It’s Not Just Killing Worthless Faggots.” Still one of the most shamefully bigoted, jaw-droppingly insensitive things I’ve ever seen on a national level.
