The Lavender Scare Virtual Screening

June 8 - June 14, 2022

As part of our Pride month programming and in conjunction with the exhibition Alexander D’Agostino: Lavender Shrine, on view at AAC through June 18, Arlington Arts Center is proud to present a virtual screening of the award-winning documentary The Lavender Scare.

The virtual screening will be accessible online at this link between June 8 and June 14.

On June 8 at 6pm, AAC will host a virtual conversation between artist Alexander D’Agostino and historian David K. Johnson. Johnson’s groundbreaking and award-winning book, The Lavender Scare brought this cold war era purge of homosexuals from the federal government to national prominence and the documentary draws heavily on his research.
