The latest in the GLBT Historical Society’s monthly “Fighting¬†Back” series exploring contemporary queer-community issues in a historical context, “Art as Resistance: 30th Anniversary of the AIDS Quilt” will offer a multigenerational conversation with organizers, artists and scholars on the role of art in promoting social justice. The participants will lead a community discussion on the history of radical and public art in the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS movements and its legacy for today, with a special focus on the 30th anniversary of the first public display of the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt.
