for the opening of
“AIDS & Same-Gender Marriage Archive

and the special exhibition
“Creating & Curating Change”
RVSP to: David McEwan dbme1@me.com
AIDS & Same Gender Marriage often dominated politics and public discourse in Hawai’i,the nation and the world for the past 38 years, and Hawai’i was on the forefront of both issues. The two were deeply connected; the struggle against AIDS helping to energize the call for marriage rights. Both were full of emotion, hope, politics, research, religion, tragedy and freedom. Worldwide, the struggles continue!
At the March 7 reception for “Creating & Curating Change” meet key people from both issues who have donated materials to the new “AIDS & Same-Gender Marriage Archive” including: Judge Dan Foley, Judge Steven Levinson, Jackie Young PhD, Heather LuskMSW, Tom Ramsey PhD, and David McEwan MD. Browse the exhibition highlighting selected publications, letters and other documents that are now permanently stored in the UH-Manoa Hamilton Library Archives. Hear stories, ask questions and learn about these crucial interconnected social movements.

The donors have contributed materials to the UH-Manoa Hamilton Library Archives to serve as core resources that start to document the Hawai’i experience of AIDS & Same-Gender Marriage. They hope that students, scholars and the larger community will study the materials to learn what happened here and draw lessons from Hawai’i’s experience.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their thoughts on how to expand the Archives.
