AUSTIN, Texas, June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS Services of Austin (ASA) and AGLIFF (Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival) unite to present BIG LOVE: ASA + AGLIFF Joint 25th Anniversary Fundraiser on Saturday, August 18 to celebrate the organizations' significant contributions to the community and spark inspiration for their future efforts.
Join us at the reopening of the Dobie Theater for this special event, where we'll take a retrospective look at our communities through landmark film programming, followed by a 25th anniversary bash to celebrate the epic era from which ASA and AGLIFF was born.
Lindsay Muse, Executive Director of AGLIFF states, "AGLIFF began 'to talk' to the LGBT community through film and now we're bringing ourselves back to Austin's cult classic Dobie Theater events space. It is also a historic coincidence that Scott Dinger, ASA's events coordinator and founder of AGLIFF, is aligning this powerful collaborative event between our organizations."
"I envisioned a reunion event at the Dobie several years ago and am honored to be a part of its production on the 25th anniversaries of ASA and AGLIFF," says Dinger. "What an exciting time for both organizations. I feel privileged to have been a part of both histories."
Help us honor progress we've made in 25 years and join in igniting our passion to continue enhancing and improving the lives of people affected by HIV and continue the battle for LGBTQIA equality and LGBTQIA discussions through film.
