...Incidents of gay-bashing have increased throughout the nation. In 1990, 1,588 acts of violence were reported in an examination of six cities. This number is up 42 percent over 1989. According to the task force's policy institute this increase may be tied to better reporting of statistics and higher media interest.
Kimberly Bergalis, a 23-year old woman who contracted AIDS from her dentist, called on Congress to require all health-care workers and hospital patients to be tested for AIDS. In a 30-second statement made on thursday, she urged "Please enact legislation so that [no one] will have to go through the hell that I have gone through."
