Jack Lowery is the author of It Was Vulgar and It Was Beautiful: How AIDS Activists Used Art to Fight a Pandemic (Bold Type Books), which tells the story of Gran Fury—the collective of artists and activists associated with ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power). In the late 1980s, the AIDS pandemic was in full swing, and disinformation about the disease ran rampant. It was during this time that ACT UP formed Gran Fury.  Gran Fury's goal was to campaign against corporate greed, government inaction, stigma, and public indifference to the epidemic, and to fight back during the AIDS crisis. Jack Lowery's writing has appeared in publications such as The Atlantic, The Times Literary Supplement and The Awl. He has taught in the Undergraduate Writing Program at Columbia University, where he also received his MFA in Nonfiction Writing. As an editor, he has published the poetry of David Wojnarowicz.
