Act Up Fight Back is sponsored by the Emory University Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and Frequent Small Meals. Tonightís program would not be possible without the kind assistance of Dr. Saralyn Chesnut and Elizabeth Elkins of the Office of Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Life at Emory.
Many of the works in Act Up Fight Back were featured in Fever in the Archive, a series of AIDS activist video seen at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2000 and curated by Jim Hubbard. I am indebted to Mr. Hubbard for his assistance and guidance in acquiring these works to show.
