Event description

Description

Join the KCL Health Forum for its opening event on the 26th of October which will screen the film ‘How to Survive a Plague’ – “the powerful and profoundly moving story of the AIDS epidemic and the grass-roots movement of activists, many of them facing their own life-or-death struggles, who grabbed the reins of scientific research to help develop the drugs that turned HIV from a mostly fatal infection to a manageable disease”.


“Electrifying. A magnificent documentary.” – Chuck Wilson. LA Weekly.

“Remarkable…An epic celebration of heroism and tenacity.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.


The evening, co-hosted with the HIV+ led activist network - ACT UP London will engage the audience in a post film Q+A discussion on the theme of ‘Critical areas of activism for transforming HIV services in the UK'. The discussion will be led by a panel consisting of HIV+ activists, health campaigners and practitioners.


Speakers on the panel include:

Will Nutland - Prepster

Greg Owen - I want PrEP now

Neo Phidelma Moepi - Positively UK

Hywel ap Dafydd - ACT UP London

Susan Cole – National AIDS Trust / Stop HIV Cuts

Leigh Chislett – 56 Dean Streat


ACT UP London is a HIV+ led, diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the HIV pandemic, along with the broader inequalities and injustices that perpetuate it.

Please bring a form of identification with you.
