We invite you to a panel conversation exploring the critical roles organizations like ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) and Visual AIDS in the context of landmark rulings that changed the face of American law. This conversation aims to complement the exhibition by shedding light on how the activism of individuals, collectives, and organizations during the AIDS crisis intersected with Lambda Legal’s work and has shaped the course of LGBTQ+ justice over the past half-century.
The panel will feature Ron Goldberg (Author of Boy with the Bullhorn), Blake Paskal (Artist Engagement and Community Programs Manager, Visual AIDS), and José Abrigo (HIV Project Director, Lambda Legal), and will be moderated by Suhaly Bautista-Carolina (Director of Public Programs and Partnerships, The American LGBTQ+ Museum).
