Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


“AIDS is not over and neither is AIDS in the past” (Sarah Schulman)

That past resonates through our present – through relationships, sexual cultures and sexuality, through art and culture, and through experiences of stigma, fear and guilt. This event will draw powerfully on excerpts from oral histories of HIV/AIDS affected people, including nurses, curated by researchers Tommy Dickinson and George Severs.

This event is part of the AIDS Histories and Cultures Festival, led by the Raphael Samuel History Centre.


The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event. Assistance dogs are welcome.

This event will be live subtitled. There is also a hearing loop in the lecture room, and portable hearing loops are available if requested in advance.
