Founded in March 1987 at the Lesbian and Gay Community Services Center (now the LGBT Center) on West 13th Street, ACT UP, New York, a broad and unlikely coalition of activists, changed the world. Armed with rancor, desperation, intelligence, and creativity, it took on the AIDS crisis with an indefatigable, ingenious, and multifaceted attack on the corporations, institutions, governments, and individuals who stood in the way of AIDS treatment for all. For over two decades, Sarah Schulman has worked to document and preserve this history, most recently with her book Let the Record Show. Join us for a look at our neighborhoods’ history of HIV/AIDS activism and the stories and lessons of ACT UP New York.
