“DOMA AND PROP 8 RALLY IN BLOOMINGTON
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the DOMA and Prop 8 marriage equality cases sometime between today and June 27th.
Please join FairTalk in showing your support for marriage equality in all 50 states by rallying on the Southeast corner of the Monroe County courthouse square in Bloomington at 5:30 p.m. on the day of the supreme court decision. This is a historic step on the road to marriage equality. We can’t let this go by unnoticed regardless of what the ruling is! Since we don’t know the exact day of the ruling, there will be very short notice to announce the date of the rally. So keep checking Facebook, follow us on twitter so you can get in the moment updates, and spread the word! Please repost this to your own Facebook page and e-mail it to everyone you know.
Bring your own signs and we will have materials available for making signs.”
Also, we have created a Facebook event for the Rally. https://www.facebook.com/events/187101024786986/?ref=3
Please follow this event and say that you are going as well as post it to your own wall. Also, please send this e-mail to your own personal e-mail list. And, if any of you are interested in speaking at the event, please join us and share your thoughts with the rally crowd.

Sunday, June 23 at 3pm WTIU
More Americans have been lost to AIDS than in all the U.S. wars since 1900. And the pandemic has killed 22 million people worldwide. But few know about the existence of the National AIDS Memorial, a seven-acre grove hidden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. THE GROVE chronicles this garden’s transformation from a neglected eyesore to landscaped sanctuary to national memorial. The film shows how a community in crisis found healing and remembrance, and how the seeds of a few visionary environmentalists blossomed into something larger than they could have imagined. But as the Grove’s stakeholders seek broader public recognition through an international design competition, a battle erupts over what constitutes an appropriate memorial for the AIDS pandemic. What does ii mean to be a national memorial? And how do we mark a lime of unimaginable loss? http://www.openeyepictures.com/thegrove/

WE WERE HERE
Sunday, June 30 at 11:30 WTIU
When AIDS came to San Francisco in the early 1980s, the city became a war zone. Friends and family members were struck down in their prime by a mostly mysterious illness for which there was no cure. But the community — lesbians, hippies, drag queens, moms and dads, doctors and nurses — came together when the nation’s leaders looked the other way and built an unprecedented system of love, care, and compassion. Their tireless fight is a testament to the capacity of people working together to rise to an unthinkable occasion. http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/we-were here/
