FREE SCREENING + Q&A with Director Jim Hubbard of UNITED IN ANGER: A HISTORY OF ACT UP on Friday, December 7 @ 7:30 PM at the Bronx Documentary Center

The Bronx Documentary Center in New York City is hosting a free screening of United in Anger: A History of ACT UP on December 7 at 7:30 PM! The film, a documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the AIDS epidemic, will be followed by a Q&A session with its editor, Ali Cotterill, and its director, Jim Hubbard. You can RSVP for the event at events@bronxdoc.org

"UNITED IN ANGER: A HISTORY OF ACT UP is the first feature-length documentary about how ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), a small group of men and women of all races and classes, came together to change the world and save each other’s lives. The film takes the viewer through the planning and execution of a dozen exhilarating major actions including Seize Control of the FDA, Stop the Church, and Day of Desperation, with a timeline of many of the other zaps and actions that forced the U.S. government and mainstream media to deal with the AIDS crisis. UNITED IN ANGER reveals the group’s complex culture – meetings, affinity groups, and approaches to civil disobedience mingle with profound grief, sexiness, and the incredible energy of ACT UP."

Learn more at Bronx Documentary Center website and at the United in Anger: A History of ACT UP Facebook page.

Help LGBT Homeless Youth Center Destroyed by Hurricane Sandy

Among the lives and property tragically lost as a result of Hurricane Sandy was the Ali Forney Center’s drop-in center for LGBT youth in Manhattan. The center was a place where many homeless LGBT youth in New York City were able to go for food, showers, clothing, medical care, HIV testing and treatment and substance abuse services.

Learn more about the Ali Forney Story by watching this video.

To help this organization continue making a difference in the lives of homeless LGBT youth, you can text GLAAD to 80888 through November 8 and give $10 to the Ali Forney Center.

You can also make a larger contribution through the Ali Forney Center’s website.

Communities Unite to Support Mollie and Kristene
A vigil was held in New York City’s Union Square Park on Sunday for Texas teens Mollie Olgin and Mary Kristene Chapa, who were shot execution style in Portland, Texas in late June. Mollie, 19, was pronounced dead on the scene and 18-year-old Kristene, her girlfriend of five months, is recovering in intensive care. The Chapa family is receiving donations through WePay to cover their daughter’s medical costs, as Mr. Chapa, an Iraq war veteran, is between jobs and the family is uninsured.
