Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Déjà Vu Of The Heart

dal-11_20_13

You’re probably looking at the photo above and experiencing déjà vu. Yes, it’s the same one that ran in Wednesday’s edition.

Long story short, there are two productions of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart being staged in Dallas in the coming weeks – one’s a fundraiser for AIDS Arms on December 7; the other’s a free staging tonight and Sunday at Cathedral of Hope. Both are intended to observe World AIDS Day.

Confused yet? We certainly were, hence the photo mix-up. (Thank God, we’re pretty.)

Now that we have that cleared up, we encourage you to make plans to see one of these productions. The Normal Heart is a moving story, set in New York City between 1981 and 1984, that takes a look at the earliest days of the AIDS epidemic – in fact, before the disease was even given a name – and the truths, both beautiful and cruel, that the crisis revealed about our nation and ourselves.

It’s an important play that reminds us where our community’s been, in hopes that we never repeat it again…unlike the photo above, which has come back twice this week.
