A Matter of Time: Examining Forty Years of AIDS While Living through a Pandemic

May 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Life-altering events are a matter of time. In the summer of 1981, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) published the first reports of five young gay men in Los Angeles with respiratory complications and other infectious diseases; two had already died. Later, the world would know the disease as AIDS or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Over 75 million people worldwide were infected with HIV, and more than 33 million have died since the beginning of the epidemic.
