Historically, within the space of the nation, major cities developed dense, material connections with each other through trade, migration, political and economic power, and infrastructure.

6 Beyond this, of course, nonknowledge also includes scientific ignorance, inadequate sexual health education, studied governmental refusal to speak or understand an epidemic unfolding in its midst, the nonknowledge demanded of gay lives by the broader society, the blind eye turned toward the racialized poor, and then the purported secrecy and deviousness of those who infect others.
