Preserving the history of women in ACT UP

by Jim Hubbard on April 2, 2012

AfterEllen posted a great review of United in Anger today:

“I’m encouraged to see so many women in the film. In my experience, most of the caretakers for dying AIDS victims were women — many lesbian and bisexual. Public action always drew large numbers of women, ready to unite with our brothers to bring attention to the disease and the lack of funding for research. Those of us who were activists then still have that bond with the men who survived. And thanks to United in Anger, that history will be preserved.”

OMG, I am so excited about this project! I was one of the few original women in ACT UP NYC back in the 80′s, and it was the best, and most heartbreaking, four years of my life.
