Friends of the Bing Set to Screen Angels in America
Friends Of the Bing is proud to announce that its Stage to Screen presentation of Angels in America, Tony Kushner’s groundbreaking play about the early days of the AIDS crisis, is being partnered by a diverse group of community-based organizations.
Pride Foundation is sponsoring the screening of the National Theatre production, which will be shown at the Bing on Sunday, October 22 at 2 pm.
Tylene Carnell, Regional Director of the Pride Foundation, explained the Foundation’s support saying:
“To fully understand where we are today, we must, at times, return to our history. To fully acknowledge the gains we have made, we must, at times, remind ourselves of what we have overcome. To fully grasp who we are today, we must, remember those who came before. Pride Foundation is proud to sponsor this important and enlightening view into one aspect of our LGBTQ heritage while highlighting the groups and organizations continuing the work today.”
Community agency partners include Inland Business Alliance (INBA) , the Inland region’s LGBTQ business association; Spokane AIDS Network (SAN), providing education, advocacy, and outreach resources to the greater Spokane Area; and Spokane Regional Health District – HIV/STD Program, providing direct care and support services to those living with HIV/AIDS in the Greater Spokane Area. These organizations will be present at the screening with outreach materials and personnel to describe the services they provide.
Bozzi Media Group and the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) are media and cultural sponsors of the Stage to Screen series.
