Outragreous Oral: “How Dallas Survived the Plague” at S4

Posted on 17 Jan 2013 at 6:38am

Join The Dallas Way for a very special Outrageous Oral: “How Dallas Survived the Plague.”

The 80s and early 90s in Dallas were marked with momentous change in the gay and lesbian community, particularly with the arrival of AIDS.

Come hear William Waybourn and Sherry Jacobson tell stories from the trenches of the AIDS battle in Dallas. Waybourn was at the helm of the Dallas Gay Alliance and Jacobson was the AIDS beat reporter for the Dallas Morning News.

Few communities outside of New York and San Francisco had such great success in getting the important story of AIDS out to the public. Dallas was fortunate to have both of these media-saavy giants at the forefront of the fight.

The evening includes a reception, an evening of storytelling and a Q and A with the speakers.

DEETS: S4, 3911 Cedar Springs Road. 6–9 p.m. Free. Event page on Facebook.
