As is was not only about AIDS. It raised questions of love and courage relevant to everyone, straight or gay, male or female. Rich has a new young lover, a successful business and a newly published book when he finds he has AIDS. Friends and family turn their backs on Rich. Only his former lover Saul returns to care for him and accepts him ‘as is’.
