Unmasked Real Faces of HIV flyerExhibit Opening! UNMASKED: Real Faces of HIV

Thursday, August 17, 2017, 6:30pm – 9:00pm  at the museum

In spite of 80 million infections, HIV is for many a faceless pandemic characterized by stigma, fear and shame. This powerful mobile exhibit unmasks the faces of real people dealing with HIV and we are happy to have it at the museum for a limited engagement.
 
Come and see photos of many people living with HIV and hear their filmed stories. “Unmask” yourself, should you wish, by telling your own story on film of being either affected by or infected with HIV.

 

 

 

 


WAMFilms_MakingtheBoysFilm Screening: Making the Boys

Friday, August 18, 2017 at the museum

Making the Boys is a documentary which describes the making of the play and film by the same name, The Boys in The Band.  It is a brilliant portrayal of the production of both the groundbreaking film and the play. Making the Boys looks at the huge mainstream reaction to the play and film which opened in 1968. Gay stereotypes abound and tragically, five of the original performers as well as the first director and producer, all eventually died of AIDS long after the play ran. Don’t miss this fascinating part of history! See Playbill’s STAGE TO SCREENS article about it here.
