LGBT movie documentary

The Triangle has been given two opportunities to show one of the most discussed documentaries in the GLBT community of the past year: "How to Survive a Plague". Two Screenings Only! The Casbah downtown has a 7 PM screening on Jan 9 (Weds) and The Carolina Theatre of Durham hosts a screening on Thurs, Jan 24. Both are FREE!

"How to Survive a Plague" is a chronicle mostly of original media footage of the horrible years of the late 1980s/early 1990s when our Community was being ravaged by a deadly disease with no known cure or treatment. The atrocities of the era gave way to a fighting spirit that literally saved lives as the brave ones refused to be ignored.

If you are old enough to remember these years, you will remember the anger and despair of the times, while seeing it through a hopeful lens of all that has come since then to provide hope and build a Community. If you are too young to remember this dark era, it is all the more vital for you to see this film, and to experience the history where so many of our forebrothers and -sisters put themselves on the line for what was morally right, even as the government turned a blind eye to the thousands dying of AIDS.

    Had a nice time. Thanks to everyone that came out. I hope you all found the documentary informative & enlightening. Sorry we weren't able to meet up with everyone that came out. We got delayed at the restaurant as we were trying to pay our bill as well as getting swallowed up in the large crowd of people in the lobby. I hope everyone that came out enjoyed themselves.

    I highly recommend this documentary. Not only was it heartfelt but it was very educational as well as eye opening. In spite of this being a very dark moment in the lgbt community it was also very inspiring to see how our community came together & worked relentlessly to fix major flaws in how our government address major outbreaks that can impact anyone. We loved it so much that we're returning for a second viewing.
