Tamar Carroll discusses the coalition created in New York City in the late 1980s and early 1990s between gay men AIDS activists and reproductive rights feminists. The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP New York) and Women's Health Action Mobilization (WHAM!) joined to forcefully advocate rights to sexual autonomy and for universal health care. Using dramatic street theater, bold art, and civil disobedience, they advanced their message and criticized homophobes and misogynists. This event is supported by a Humanities New York action grant.
