Donna Summer Sent Never-Before-Seen Apology Letter To ACT UP

Back in the 1980s, Donna Summer was protested by gay groups such as ACT UP for her statements attributed to a Village Voice article that AIDS was God’s punishment for the gays. While Summer and the gay community obviously made up over time, what has never been published before is the full apology letter Summer sent to ACT UP in 1989.

The letter was obtained by Poz Blog’s Peter Staley, who requested a full copy from ACT UP’s archives at New York’s LGBT Community Center.
