We hope you can join us for this special screening and panel conversation at Great Hall/Long Hall in West Hollywood's Plummer Park. The event will showcase our first three short films spotlighting significant LGBTQ spaces and civil rights stories, and a special panel conversation will follow.

We're excited to hold this event at one of the locations featured in the films! At the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and 90s, Great Hall/Long Hall in Plummer Park hosted the meetings of the local chapter of the prominent AIDS advocacy group ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), serving as the backdrop to unprecedented campaigns for greater visibility and more effective treatment. The group was instrumental in compelling the federal government to respond to the HIV/AIDS crisis through new research and healthcare programs.

The films also showcase the following locations: The Black Cat (Silver Lake) and The Woman’s Building (Chinatown). The event will also explore other LGBTQ historic places throughout Los Angeles.

Panelists for the evening will be announced soon!
