What Is the Story of The Normal Heart?
The Normal Heart centers on Ned Weeks, a gay writer who finds himself at the forefront of the fight against AIDS at a time when the disease was so terrifyingly, new it didn’t even have a name. As more and more of his friends fall ill, Ned does his best to rally support for the cause all while finding love with his own partner, Felix, and raging against institutions of media, medicine and government that seem determined to ignore him.
