We Were Here chronicles the rise of AIDS in San Francisco’s Castro district, giving historical perspective to what was once thought of as a “gay cancer.” Told through first-hand accounts from the people that lived through the epidemic’s early years, their stories of losing not just friends, but entire social circles, is heart-wrenching. Coupled with attitudes outside the community that ranged from apathetic to downright hostile, this is really the story of how a community was brought together by a common tragedy.
