Film Discussion – We Were Here: The AIDS Years in San Francisco (2011)
December 1, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
In observance of World AIDS Day, the Phoenix LGBTQ Employee Alliance has partnered
with the City of Phoenix Fast-Track Cities Initiative for a hybrid (in-person and virtual) event.
The featured film discussion is on WE WERE HERE, an intimate, yet epic history of the AIDS

Kehagias. We are going to hear how Coach Shegog navigated difficult issues in order to be
the teacher, coach, father figure, and exemplary role model that inspired multiple generations
