AIDS 35 Years Later Event (Audio)

By Charlotte Robinson, October 23, 2016
Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) & the New York Public Library will host "Library & Leaders: 35 Years of AIDS" on Wednesday October 26th from 6P to 8:30P at the Library Main Branch located at 5th Avenue & 42nd Street in NYC. The discussion will feature GMHC co-founders, Larry Kramer & Larry Mass, MD as well as C. Virginia Fields, President & CEO of National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS & Johanne Morne, Director of the New York State AIDS Institute. Kelsey Louie, CEO of GMHC who will moderate the panel discussion stated, "What an honor it will be to host this forum at the New York Public Library, one of the city's greatest institutions & have a discussion among two of our founders & other leaders in the field about 35 years of AIDS. I am inspired by the energy & dedication that activists in the 1980s & 90s spent fighting the epidemic & caring for their loved ones. Currently & looking forward, what concerns me most is the sense of complacency around HIV & AIDS. There is still lots of work to be done." The purpose of this public forum will be to engage leaders, activists & advocates in a discussion about the 35 year history of the AIDS epidemic, landmark moments in the fight to end AIDS & what is needed to end the epidemic by 2020. The event will be highlighted by an exhibition of GMHC's archived materials, housed in the New York Public Library Gay & Lesbian Collections and HIV/AIDS Collections. In this exclusive audio interview legendary activist & playwright Larry Kramer co-founder of Gay Men’s Health Crisis & ACT UP talks about LGBT equality, how his play “The Normal Heart” eventually found its audience & his frustration with the current AIDS national research policies.  LISTEN
