Antioch University Los Angeles, Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center, and QueerWise Company at Skylight Theater partnered together to host a performance of “Do you know the stories?” written by AULA adjunct faculty member Ken Pienkos for World AIDS DAY. Dr. Enrique Lopez, Clinical Supervisor for Colors LGBT Youth Counseling Center, led the after show TalkBack on December 10th.
World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
“We’ve crafted a powerful evening of story recognizing the history and memory of AIDS through more than three decades. The show processes intimate trauma with authenticity, audacity, and humor,” said Pienkos.
The performances were held on December 3rd and the 10th. They were free and open to anyone who wanted to attend.
