OKCMOA, AIDS Walk OKC, deadCENTER present: WE WERE HERE

deadCENTER,  The Oklahoma City Museum of Art, and AIDS Walk OKC are joining together to co-present the documentary film WE WERE HERE -Wednesday, November 30, 7:30pm at the OKCMOA Noble Theatre.

We Were Here documents the coming of what was called the “Gay Plague” in the early 1980s. It illuminates the profound personal and community issues raised by the AIDS epidemic as well as the broad political and social upheavals it unleashed.  It offers a cathartic validation for the generation that suffered through, and responded to, the onset of AIDS. It opens a window of understanding to those who have only the vaguest notions of what transpired in those years. It provides insight into what society could, and should, offer its citizens in the way of medical care, social services, and community support. It speaks to our capacity as individuals to rise to the occasion, and to the incredible power of a community coming together with love, compassion, and determination.
