Join us on Wednesday, November 17th, 2021 at 6:30 pm EST for a ZOOM Conversation.

Presented in conversation with SNMA Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian, Beau McCall and Souleo will celebrate the power of friendship and memories in the LGBTQ+ community during this talk for Beau McCall’s REWIND: MEMORIES ON REPEAT. McCall’s debut art book honors the legacy of ten of McCall’s deceased friends through collages composed of archival photos and images from his button artwork. The collages capture the late 1970s to the mid-1980s, from Philadelphia to New York, during the LGBTQ+ rights movement, the height of disco music and the AIDS crisis.

McCall will be joined by Souleo, guest editor of the book.

The event is free, open to the public and conducted via ZOOM.
