Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Executive Director Tom Viola says: "In the two decades since THE NIGHT Larry Kramer KISSED ME debuted, treatments for saving lives have advanced, yet HIV-related stigma has, sadly, increased. The treatment for stigma isn't found at a pharmacy, it is accomplished by empowering the stigmatized, educating the public and providing a path to justice for all."
Sean Strub, executive director of Sero Project, adds: "The message so eloquently conveyed in THE NIGHT Larry Kramer KISSED ME is needed today even more so than before. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Sero are fighting HIV-related stigma, discrimination and criminalization, and working to ensure that vital, life-affirming, and, in many cases, life-saving services are available to those who need them."
Strub and Viola produced THE NIGHT Larry Kramer KISSED ME when it first premiered Off-Broadway.
