This is a free in-person event, and seating is first come, first served.
Boy with the Bullhorn: A Memoir and History of ACT UP New York is Goldberg’s immersive and chronological history of the New York chapter of ACT UP, the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, and a memoir of the coming of age and activist education of a nice gay Jewish wannabe actor during the darkest years of the AIDS epidemic, told with great energy and surprising humor.
Ron Goldberg is a writer and activist. His articles have appeared in OutWeek and POZ magazines, Central Park, and The Visual AIDS Blog. Ron served as a research associate for filmmaker and journalist David France on his award-winning book, How to Survive a Plague, and enjoys speaking at high schools and colleges about the history of AIDS and the lessons and legacy of ACT UP. He lives in New York City.
