GLBT Historical Society Museum, 4127 18th St., San Francisco, CA 94114
Free | $5 donation welcome
The first public showing of video interviews from the GLBT Historical Society's ongoing San Francisco ACT UP Oral History Project documenting the history of direct-action AIDS activism in the Bay Area.
The full videos will eventually be made available to researchers and will form the basis of an exhibition in our museum, providing new insights into the contributions of activists as LGBTQ people and people with AIDS fought against the epidemic and the lethally slow response of the government.
Current project manager Eric Sneathen will lead a discussion after the screenings and video clip introductions by Lauren Levin, Irwin Swirnoff and Patrick Martin-Tuite.
This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org.
