On May 9th in New York City, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will hold a public meeting to address the issues of the generation of gay men who survived the plague.
The Medius Working Group presents a free community forum to assess what it’s like to be part of the “AIDS Generation,” to have lived through the epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s and how those experiences have affected the lives we’ve led since then. The evening begins at 7 pm with an excerpt from the Oscar-nominated documentary How to Survive a Plague, followed by a panel at 7:15 pm and an open discussion at 8:30 pm. The evening will be hosted by the Tony Award-winning star of Angels in America Stephen Spinella, with a panel featuring Jesus Aguais, Dr. L. Jeannine Bookhardt-Murray, Dr. Mark Brennan-Ing, Jim Eigo, Joe Jervis and Peter Staley, moderated by Dr. Perry N. Halkitis.
I’m proud to note that I’ve been invited to appear on this scientist-laden panel to provide a writer’s perspective.
