Storyline

Louis, having forsaken his dying lover, Prior, returns to his apartment with the married lawyer, Joe, in tow. Cohn's doctor admits him to the hospital. Once there, Cohn meets Nurse Norman "Belize" Arriaga - a drag queen who also happens to be Prior's good friend. Although Belize despises Cohn for his belligerence and narrow-mindedness, he educates the vitriolic Cohn about life in the hospital. Amazingly, Cohn is more upset that his hospital room telephone doesn't have a "hold" button than the fact that he has AIDS. Late at night, as Cohn demands his own supply of AZT - a drug unavailable to most. Written by D. MacCann
