Join the Branigan Cultural Center for a lecture by Jesus Padilla entitled “Truth and Testimony” at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

In 1998, the local gay community organized an effort to bring the AIDS Quilt to Las Cruces. The effort required fundraising for an event that was considered taboo in a transformative decade. The quilt, which signified memories of those that lost the battle to AIDS, eventually made its way to Las Cruces after months of preparation and discussion over the safety and security of those involved. Padilla will be providing a speech on the truths and testimonies of what it was like to participate in the coordinating of these efforts and the significance of the AIDS Quilt.

After the lecture, attendees are invited to tour the exhibition Voices of Change: LGBTQ Activism on exhibit at the Branigan Cultural Center through October 26, 2019. 

The Branigan Cultural Center is located at 501 N. Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The museum is accessible from RoadRUNNER transit Route 1 Stop 36. For additional information, visit the website at: or call 575.541.2154.
