“Marching in Gucci: Memoirs of a Well-Dressed Black AIDS Activist” (MOA performance)
October 11 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Held at the Schnitzer Museum of Art’s Pavilion Gallery
Part of reaching one’s own soonish goals is being true to who you are. This multi-media solo performance by award-winning Chad Goller-Sojourner, a Seattle-based writer and storyteller, recognizes and honors October 11 as National Coming Out Day (and its 30th anniversary). This multimedia oral history performance, set in New York City during the height of the AIDS Crisis around the 1980s, explores the paradoxical and precarious relationship between fighting AIDS while engaging in self-harming behaviors. Goller-Sojourner is a recipient of a distinguished Washington State Arts Commission Performing Arts Fellowship. The exhibition is sponsored by the John Matthews Friel Memorial Arts Lectureship, and the members of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU. Verification of attendance for the Common Reading are available.
