Conversations with Gay Elders: Gene Fedorko
June 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Film and Discussion with Paul C. Bellman, MD, Jack Water, Peter Cramer and Gene Fedorko
Back by popular demand, Howl! Happening is pleased to present a screening of a segment of Conversations with Gay Elders about the life of Gene Fedorko. In Conversations with Gay Elders, filmmaker David Weissman (The Cockettes, We Were Here) fosters a cross-generational collaboration. He works with gay men in their 20s and 30s to profile gay men in their 70s and 80s whose journeys of self-discovery precede the era of Stonewall and gay liberation. Conversations with Gay Elders explores how these men navigated being “different” long before there was any social or political context for a positive LGBT self-image.
Panel discussion to follow with Paul C. Bellman, MD, a physician who worked for decades on the frontlines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Jack Waters and Peter Cramer, cultural avant-gardists of the LES, who have seen it all. Q & A to follow.
