10 Sitcoms That Helped Remove Stigma From HIV And AIDS

“Golden Girls”

“Golden Girls” is one of my all-time favorite shows. Not only was it hilarious, the writers were constantly looking for ways to push the envelope or challenge their audience to see issues and people differently. In one season 5 episode, “72 Hours,” Rose learns that a blood transfusion she received several years ago, may have been contaminated with AIDS. Back then, you had to wait days for your results to come back. During those days Rose and her roommates learn a lot about “the type of people” who can contract the disease and what her life might mean if she has to live with it.
