LGBTQ+ Youth: Oral Histories

Andrew Wood, June 24, 2014 (Q101)
Born in Atlanta in 1962, Andrew Wood is a graphic designer and gay activist. The son of two doctors, Wood attended public schools in Dekalb County and worked in public radio. When he moved to San Francisco to attend art school in 1980, he joined the thriving  organization, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence - a charitable group of gay activists who dressed in nuns habits and performed street theater. While in San Francisco, Wood experienced the AIDS epidemic which caused him to return to Atlanta. After the Democratic National Convention in 1988, he and a handful of fellow protesters started an Atlanta Chapter of ACT/UP, in an effort to bring attention to the plight of AIDS sufferers. Wood moved to New Orleans in 1990 and stayed there until 2004 when he returned to Atlanta.
