Bearing Witness: The impact of hiv/aids on Black LGBTQ people
July 11, 2019 - July 13, 2019Free
Bearing Witness: An evening of stories, spoken word and music exploring the impact of HIV/AIDS on Black and African American LGBTQ People
Developed by Chad Goller-Sojourner
Despite bearing the statistical brunt of this country’s HIV/AIDS epidemic, Black LGBTQ people and our stories have yet to secure our rightful seat at the collective HIV/AIDS narrative table. We are left with only two options – wait for an invitation that is never coming or answer the call of our ancestor Marlon Riggs, who said, “When nobody speaks your name or even knows it, you, knowing it, must be the first to speak it.”
Hear these accounts from Black voices in our LGBTQ communities July 11-13, 7-9pm.
RSVP for free at gaycity.org/Tickets.
