Living in the Tension – Mon 8/26

For our upcoming Living in the Tension gathering on Monday, August 26, we will be watching the documentary We Were HereThe documentary tells the story of the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco, specifically focusing on the lives of five individuals who were affected by the epidemic. It is not only a window into the suffering and loss experienced by the gay community at that time, but an inspiring testament to the resiliency, sense of community and compassion that arose in the face of tragedy. We will be meeting in Room 124 on 5255 N Ashland Ave. at 7pm.

If you’re available beforehand, we will be meeting at Lady Gregory’s (5260 N Clark St.) at 5:15pm to hang out and grab a bite to eat.

We hope to see you there!

Much love.
