Charity screening of the powerful film 1985

This event was organised by Alan Spink and Ash Kotak on behalf of The Martin Fisher Foundation and AIDSMemoryUK on Friday 12th April at the Sallis Benney Theatre in Brighton. It was a very interesting evening with talks from 4 people offering different perspectives on living with HIV in the U.K. in 2019.

Diverse groups were represented including white and BAME gay and heterosexual men and women and people living with haemophilia .

Then the audience watched the film from Yen Tan, “1985”. Incredibly touching and moving with not a dry eye in in the house.

The evening highlighted the stark contrast between HIV and its implications in 1985 and the present day. It also showed that we still have much work to do the end the stigma of HIV.
