past, present & future

+ talk by HIV advocate, Martin Burns.

People still find it counterintuitive that not a single human has died directly because of HIV and the fact that AIDS is something that exists only in the abstract. As much as 'It's A Sin' was a wonderful piece of TV, it missed some opportunities and set a few truths backwards.

LGBTQ+ identities and politics are constantly evolving. From the unsung heroes of a Gay Women's Liberation movement to an imagined activist utopia, these films chart queer history from the past to the future.
