Bottom left has a logo for "Actup San Francisco" and "Take to the streets! Join ACT UP San Francisco. Call (415) 677-7988 or write to/ 2261 Market Street, Box #115 San Francisco, CA 94114. ACT UP! fight Back! Fight Aids!"

Poster has a black background with a black and white photograph of a naked man's backside. There is a magnifying glass showing the face of Pete Wilson as a hemorrhoid. The top has large white lettering that reads, "Inflamed by flare-ups against queers and PWAs? Maybe it's your Governor." The bottom has an image of a hemerrhoid cream bottle with the label of "Termination P Gubernatorial Ointment/ Helps shrink swelling of homophobic assholes like Pete Wilson ... and gives prompt permanent relief from the painful burning and irritation of fascist AIDS policies associated with the Republican Party." Below is small white text: "Suffering from that painful feeling that comes form being fucked over too many times? A Governor like Pete Wilson can do that to you. His vetoing of domestic partnership, needle exchange, reclassification of marijuana for medicinal use and anti-discrimination laws to protect Queers is no secret. His support of reactionary measures like involuntary HIV testing and Proposition 187 is frightening./ The Republicans, in cooperation with fundamentalist Christian hate groups, are cooking up a right-wing agenda of intolerance they plant to push on California, and ultimately, the nation. Their mission is clear: to create an unbearable atmosphere of hatred and violence that forces Queers into the closet and PWAs into the grave. Republicans are counting on a political sweep on Election day. We must stop them now! Our lives depend on it. It's time to ACT UP San Francisco!"
