3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Inspired by the current cultural production around HIV/AIDS and
the early response, this public conversation, will provide a forum for those
engaged in counter culture and queer world making. The afternoon event is a
chance to collectively reckon with historical legacies and the present moment
in pursuit of progressive futures. Issues around being overwhelmed,
"feeling backward', identifying with the dead, archive activism, trans
politics, and "ongoing AIDS" will be explored. Refreshments will be
served. Hosted by Pato Hebert and Ted Kerr.
Revisiting the AIDS Crisis and the Ongoing Epidemic
The series' goal is to explore and discuss health and wellness topics that impact our lives, communities, and world. Each activity within the series is designed to foster critical thinking and brainstorms that will seek solutions to real world health concerns. Developed by students and organizations, supportive services and academic programs, the series by its very development is built on a framework of collaboration that promotes interdisciplinary approaches.
