Aids Diva: The Legend of Connie Norman
Apr 24, 2021 to Apr 28, 2021 - various times - English
The number and range of people involved in the struggle for AIDS victims is larger and wider than we can possibly know. It’s proven once again by this intriguing portrait of Connie Norman, a local LA activist who worked tirelessly to make a difference. Director Dante Alencastre deftly handles this portrait of a political figure whose HIV diagnosis spurred her eloquent rage against complacency, hatred and denial as the AIDS virus ravaged the queer community. Yet Norman is also shown as a nuanced early spokesperson for trans rights, raising her head high above the parapet and creating an unbreakable bridge between sexuality and gender that we are still crossing today.
