BEHOLD! AIDS Diva: The Legend of Connie Norman
June 28, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm PDT$50.00
A special fundraiser screening of this 2018 documentary on the late AIDS Activist and LGBTQ media spokesperson, Connie Norman.
As the self-appointed “AIDS DIVA” and ACT UP/LA spokesperson in early 90’s Los Angeles, Connie Norman stood proudly in her multiple, fluid and evolving LGBTQ identities. Both beloved and confrontational, Connie’s soulful and salty rantings and intersectional politics were heard widely through her newspaper column, and pioneering radio and cable TV talk shows. Serving as a bridge in both gender and politics, and modeling “wokeness” in an early era of crisis, Connie’s piercing and compassionate voice urges us again into action, to fully engage with our lives and our world.
The Alliance is also pleased to be honoring filmmaker Arthur Dong with it’s inaugural Trail Blazer Award.
TRAIL BLAZER AWARD Recipient, Arthur Dong.
