ALLIANCE FUNDRAISER
BEHOLD! AIDS DIVA: THE LEGEND OF CONNIE NORMAN

FRIDAY JUNE 28, 2019 @ 8:30 PM – 10:30 PM

A special fundraiser screening of this 2018 documentary on the late AIDS Activist and LGBTQ media spokesperson, Connie Norman. Co-presented as a fundraiser by California LGBT ARTS ALLIANCE and Highways Performance Space 30th Anniversary BEHOLD! Series

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.

Honoree
The Alliance is also pleased to be honoring filmmaker ARTHUR DONG this evening with its inaugural Trail Blazer Award.
Arthur Dong is an Oscar®-nominated and triple Sundance award-winning filmmaker, author and curator whose work centers on Asian American and LGBTQ stories.
