Discussing the censorship of gay artist’s ‘A Fire in My Belly’

Emory University hosts “Art and Censorship: A Screening of David Wojnarowicz’s ‘A Fire in My Belly’ and Panel Discussion from 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17.

“A Fire in My Belly” was part of the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition titled “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture” and was recently banned from the exhibit after Catholic leaders complained to the Smithsonian of the image of ants crawling over a crucifix.

Also part of the Thursday event at Emory will be film footage of ACT UP in Atlanta from 1990, provided by Jeff Graham, a longtime HIV and LGBT activist who is now the executive director of Georgia Equality.
