September 5, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 6:00 pm
By Matt Jeffries (Director, Gender Identity/Expression and Sexual Orientation Resource Center). While Cline portrays a rosy image of the 1980s, for many communities, the 1980s were rife with strife. In this engaging lecture, the presenter discusses the 1980s and how the LGBT community handled the HIV/AIDS crisis. Additionally, he addresses how stigmas around HIV/AIDS prevail through present day, including in digital spaces. Verification of attendance will be provided.
