Everybody Everybody tells the story of a young gay man who gets swept up in the excitement, fury, and poignancy of ACT UP, the controversial AIDS activist group, in New York City in the late 1980s–early 90s. ACT UP staged civil disobedience to get media attention and force the government to respond to the AIDS crisis. The novel focuses on a recent historical moment when anger about government inaction sent young people like the narrator and his friends into the streets to fight for their lives. Amid this climate of crisis, they discovered love, sex, friendship, and joy.
