Lambda Literary is a proud media sponsor of the Museum of the City of New York‘s upcoming event “Chronicling a Crisis: Writers on the History of HIV/AIDS.”

About the event:

Chronicling a Crisis: Writers on the History of HIV/AIDS
Thursday, July 20th at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the City of New York (1220 Fifth Avenue)
 
From the earliest reported cases in the 1980s, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has spurred New Yorkers to innovate new forms of social services, expand conceptions of family, fight social stigma, and push for greater political and medical intervention. Inspired by the Museum’s exhibition, AIDS at Home: Art and Activism, Anne-christine d’Adesky, David France, and Tim Murphy – three authors whose work offers a searingly honest glimpse into the hard fought battle against the disease and its aftermath – will be joined by journalist Mathew Rodriguez for a conversation about challenges of writing about HIV/AIDS across literary genres.
 
Reception and book signing to follow.

One Response to “Chronicling a Crisis: Writers on the History of HIV/AIDS”

    I ran a haemophilia centre in the UK when AIDS hit. The only people to help me figure out what the hell it was, was Larry Kramer and Gay Men’s Health Crisis in NYC. I have talked about it in my recent book. Columbia Road Of Blood and Belonging. Awful times watching patients die and all the prejudice everyone suffered gay or straight.
