Today the National HIV Story Trust announces the launch of our educational resource ‘The Hidden History of HIV’.
We realise that for many people under 30, It’s A Sin is likely to have been their first introduction to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. By bringing together articulate individuals who lived through the pandemic, we want to ensure that their real life experiences – whether they are living with HIV, cared for their dying friends or led clinical research – are not forgotten by younger generations.
To mark the launch we are hosting our first online forum on 27th April 2021 at 4pm-5:15pm. Full details are available on our Eventbrite page here, including agenda and speaker biographies. While the event will be aimed at sixth form/college age groups, it is open to all.
As an archive we have a responsibility to ensure the experiences – which are simultaneously tragic, heroic, distressing, inspirational, heart-breaking and heart-warming – of the HIV pandemic are not only preserved but also serve to educate and inform.
