A contemporary of Joe Brainard and Eileen Myles, Dlugos was a defining voice in queer and AIDS literature in the 80s at the height of the AIDS crisis, the disease ultimately claiming him far too soon. His ability to stare down his own mortality and his country’s failure to take the reins of the growing epidemic while never losing his signature irreverance defines his legacy but each poem is a marvel of its own.
