File:AIDS Poster If You're Dabbling in Drugs 1989.jpg

English: The attractive, athletic young man in the photograph to the left was not the typical image of someone with AIDS in the late 1980s. While the viewer may anticipate a message about sports or some other aspect of youth culture, the accompanying text in this poster provides a statement about the threat of AIDS associated with drug use. This type of image helped challenge prevailing stereotypes of drug users and at-risk populations for AIDS.
