Screening of After Goodbye: An AIDS Story

UNT Special Collections and the UNT Pride Alliance are pleased to present a screening of the film After Goodbye: An AIDS Story as part of a semester-long collaboration dedicated to programming related to the impact of HIV/AIDS on the LGBTQ+ community of Dallas, Texas.
 
This Emmy-winning documentary produced by KERA examines the impact of AIDS on the Turtle Creek Chorale, a men’s chorus based in Dallas, which lost more than 90 of its members to AIDS at the time of film production, and nearly 200 as of today. The film explores how the Chorale banded together to navigate grief and acceptance through music.
 
Join us at 6:30pm in the UNT Gateway Center, Ballroom 34 for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The film will begin at 7pm, and members of the Turtle Creek Chorale A Capella group Camerata will perform throughout the evening.
 
We invite you to join us after the film for a Q&A session. Kathleen Hobson-Bond, Director of the UNT Pride Alliance, will moderate this discussion.
 
Related events: How to Survive a Plague (part of the Doc Spot Film Series) on November 29, 2017, and the ongoing Threads of Remembrance exhibit in UNT Special Collection (Willis Library Room 437). The exhibit will remain on display through December 15, 2017.

"Hit the Wall" at Water Tower Theatre on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 7:30PM

Join The Dallas Way for a performance of "Hit The Wall" at Water Tower Theatre on August 16h at 7:30PM.  TDW guests can purchase discounted tickets for $22.  To obtain the discount, call the box office at 972-450-6232, and tell Kayla Freeman you are with The Dallas Way.  

The show follows a diverse group of young people as a joyful evening at a gay nightclub, following the death of the iconic Judy Garland, is brutally interrupted by a police raid that touches off days of violent protests. Hit the Wallpremiered in 2012 at Chicago's famed Steppenwolf Theatre. Hit the Wall transports audiences to the Stonewall Riots in New York's Greenwich Village on June 27-28, 1969, when a routine police raid on an underground gay hotspot became a foundational moment for the modern gay rights movement. Featuring a howling live rock band that evokes the era's proto-punk music and fast-paced, sharp dialogue, the vivid theatrical re-imagination focuses on ten unlikely revolutionaries, each claiming in turn "I was there."

Hit the Wall is recommended for mature audiences only due to adult content and language.

Water Tower Theatre is located at 15650 Addison Road, Addison, TX  75001

History Display at City Hall for Gay Pride Month

The Dallas Way underwrote and worked with the University of North Texas to present an exhibit at Dallas City Hall that includes memorabilia items and a huge timeline that covers a massive wall and gives an overview of major happenings in the Dallas LGBT community throughout its history.  About 85 people attended the opening of the display and heard speakers who shared stories about their involvement in the history of the community.  Speakers included Terry Loftis, former city-councilman Chris Luna, and Barbara Rosenberg.  The exhibit will be on display in the main lobby of City Hall throughout the month of June.
