About this Event

UNT Special Collections and the UNT Pride Alliance are pleased to present a screening of the film After Goodbye: An AIDS Story as part of a semester-long collaboration dedicated to programming related to the impact of HIV/AIDS on the LGBTQ+ community of Dallas, Texas.

This Emmy-winning documentary produced by KERA examines the impact of AIDS on the Turtle Creek Chorale, a men’s chorus based in Dallas, which lost more than 90 of its members to AIDS at the time of film production, and nearly 200 as of today. The film explores how the Chorale banded together to navigate grief and acceptance through music.

Join us at 6:30pm in the UNT Gateway Center, Ballroom 34 for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The film will begin at 7pm, and members of the Turtle Creek Chorale A Capella group Camerata will perform throughout the evening.

We invite you to join us after the film for a Q&A session. Kathleen Hobson-Bond, Director of the UNT Pride Alliance, will moderate this discussion.
