CGiii Comment

Whether you believe is all this self-love or not...it doesn't matter.

What matters is Louise gave a splinter of hope and a ton of compassion to those poor, poor people who were ignored by those who were meant to care for them...most notably: Government, Ronald Reagan et al.

What harm can it do? We all need to love ourselves...if it gives even the slightest bit of comfort, it's better than nothing and, in those times, nothing was exactly what those people had.

It will make you cry.

As the AIDS epidemic took hold in the early 1980s, self-help guru Louise Hay created a space for healing called the Hayride. Drawing hundreds of gay men confronting a deadly and stigmatized disease, Louise promised that they could overcome AIDS through self-love. Some said this early new age wellness movement was unscientific and harmful. Others who were suffering said that Louise healed them. In the face of a deadly pandemic and government neglect, resilience takes unusual forms, and for Louise Hay’s circle, intimate forms of reckoning were transformative.
