50,000 Gone: Lessons Learned, Lessons Forgotten
Kelli Dunham, Queer Memoir
By the time protease inhibitors became available in 1995, over 50,000 New Yorkers had died of HIV/AIDS.
At this storytelling event, those who lived through those years will share narratives about the early years of HIV/AIDS in New York and consider the question: what did we learn about community and death then and are we still applying those truths now?
This event is part of Queer Memoir, NYC's longest-running LGBT focused storytelling series, nominated for a White House Champion of Change award under the last administration. Bios to come. Curated and hosted by Kelli Dunham.
