Thomas Martorelli's For People, Not for Profit tells the story of Fenway Health's growth from a small, volunteer-run walk-in clinic to an international leader into an international leader in care and research for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and people living with HIV/AIDS. It is also the story of the tremendous societal changes that drove and affected that growth. The community activism and volunteer collectives of the 1970s; the devastation of the HIV/AIDS epidemic which emerged in the 1980s; the LGBT civil rights movement that gained strength and momentum through the 1990s; and the advances in research and advocacy that have brought so many health care and civil rights victories in the 2000s - it's all there. At the same time, Martorelli tells us Fenway's story through the voices of the people who were and are still a part of this incredible organization - from the early ups and downs through Fenway's growth into one of the largest LGBT health organizations in the world.
