Meg Handler: Acting Up and Acting Out
ACT UP March, Stonewall 25th Anniversary, June 26, 1994.
"Made between 1992-1994, these photographs provide an intimate look at New Yorkers' engagement in AIDS activism and the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. Diverse groups of New Yorkers came together for the collective cause of civil rights. At political funerals, marches, protests, parades, community centers, the people I photographed were aware of how media representation would define them. They were active participants in the making of these images." Meg Handler, 2022
