1986 – Remember when Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police James Anderton, backed by Margaret Thatcher, said “homosexuals, drug addicts and prostitutes who had HIV/AIDS were – swirling in a human cesspit of their own making”?

1987 – Remember when every single household got a AIDS – Don’t Die of Ignorance’ leaflet through their door?

1988 – Remember when ‘Section 28’ prevented schools from teaching about homosexuality and how in 2008 HIV+ children were turned away from schools?

1991 – Remember when Whitney Houston led thousands of Londoners to Trafalgar Square as part of the epic HIV – Vigil?

2014 – Remember UKIP’s Nigel Farage saying ‘Frankly, HIV+ migrants should be the last people we allow into Britain’?

2016 – Remember how women, trans, Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) stripped naked to protest against Gilead’s pharmaceutical greed? 

2017 – Remember how successes like the introduction of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PREP) has halted diagnoses amongst gay men today but HIV+ stigma for heterosexuals is still as isolating as ever?

Everyday – Remember how National Health Service (NHS) nurses, doctors and users continually put their lives on the line to protect the HIV+ community?

Remember the tragedy, sex, desire, isolation, activism, hate and love which have made the story of the HIV+ epidemic at the heart of the story of modern London?
