The documentary “Nothing Without Us: The Women Who Will End AIDS” will be shown at Ithaca College on Wednesday, Dec. 5, in observance of World AIDS Day. Free and open to the public, the screening will take place at 6 p.m. in Textor 103.
“Nothing Without Us” explores how women at the forefront of the global AIDS movement shaped grassroots groups like ACT-UP in the U.S. and played essential roles in HIV prevention and treatment throughout sub-Saharan Africa. From beauty parlors in Baton Rouge to the first HIV clinic in Burundi, the documentary looks boldly at the unaddressed dynamics that keep women around the world at high risk for HIV.
Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day is an annual opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.
The showing is part of the Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen film series, sponsored by the Ithaca College Center for LGBT Education, Outreach and Services. For more information, visit www.ithaca.edu/lgbt.
