To build community among those affected by HIV & AIDS and expand awareness of STORIES: The AIDS Monument, FAM will be holding more STORIES Circle events in 2022.
To be notified of FAM’s future events, please sign up to receive our quarterly newsletter.
The first STORIES Circle event, entitled “Love, Light & Legacy,” was held on Dec. 1, 2021 at the site of the future AIDS Monument in West Hollywood Park.
The event featured a keynote speech by Bruce Vilanch, and then participants engaged in storytelling in groups (“Circles”) of up to eight participants. Each Circle was guided by one of the following facilitators: Rev. Dr. Steve Pieters, Abbe Land, Robert Gamboa, Dr. Louise Mebane, Cantor Juval Porat, and FAM Board members David Hardy, Lane Janger and Stephen Simon.
The next three STORIES Circle events will be held in South Los Angeles, East Los Angeles and Hollywood, in accordance with its mission to gather stories from diverse parts of our urban community. Please look out for these events to be promoted in our newsletter and on the website.
