Sunday March 10, 2013 @ 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Lang Café, 65 West 11th Street, ground floor
Inspired by the current cultural production around HIV/AIDS and the early response, this public conversation, provided a forum for those engaged in counter culture and queer world making. The afternoon event is a chance to collectively reckon with historical legacies and the present moment in pursuit of progressive futures. Issues around being overwhelmed, "feeling backward', identifying with the dead, archive activism, trans politics, and "ongoing AIDS" will be explored. Refreshments will be served. Hosted by Pato Hebert and Ted Kerr
