Join students in Contemporary LGBT Writing on March 10 at 7 PM for a roundtable discussion with Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman, producers of the documentary film United in Anger: A History of ACT UP (2012). United in Anger tells the story of the early days of AIDS activism, from the perspective of those most directly impacted by the epidemic who came together to fight it. The film documents the struggle against societal indifference and government neglect, focusing through direct interviews and archival footage on actions at the FDA, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and other locations.
This event is free and open to the public. Students in Robert McRuer’s Contemporary LGBT Writing will be reading Schulman’s 1990 novel People in Trouble in advance and meeting with the author. All who wish to attend are invited to view United in Anger in advance; the GW community can access the film here.
