NewFest Film Fest: AIDS DIVA:THE LEGEND OF CONNIE NORMAN

October 17, 6:45 pm-7:15 pm

As the self-appointed “AIDS DIVA '' and ACT UP/LA spokesperson in early 90s Los Angeles, Connie Norman stood proudly in her fluid and evolving LGBTQ+ identities. Both beloved and confrontational, Connie’s rants and intersectional politics were heard widely through her newspaper column, pioneering radio program, and cable TV talk shows.

Serving as a bridge in the realms of both gender and politics, Connie’s piercing, compassionate voice urges us into action once again, to fully engage in our own lives and the world around us.

Cast: Connie Norman, Valerie Spencer, Torie Osborn, Mary Lucey

Preceded by the following short film:
THE BEAUTY PRESIDENT
Director: Whitney Skauge, USA
Duration: 10 mins

Drag queen Joan Jett Blakk ran for US President in 1992 as one of the first openly queer candidates. Today, Terence Smith, the man behind the persona, reflects on his place in history.

Presented in partnership with ACT UP NY.
