“National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day Feb. 7 saw a celebration of the 15th Anniversary of the release of the film Kevin’s Room. The event was held at the Baton Show Lounge in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.
Hosted by the Chicago Black Gay Men’s Caucus alongside event sponsors the Chicago Department of Public Health, the evening was as much a joyous look back on the making of the groundbreaking work as it was a sobering look at the exploration of the challenges still faced by the Black gay and queer community around which the narrative of the profound, funny and deeply moving drama is based.”
