The Zhoosh! Brighton Blog
With LGBT History Month almost upon us (February) and Zhoosh involved in helping to co-ordinate LGBT History month events taking place in Brighton & Hove, Gary Pargeter from Lunch Positive contacted us about an HIV project they are involved with to record a timeline and a local history of HIV & AIDS .
“We started to compile a local history of HIV at last year’s World AIDS Day (2011) commemorations with the help of members recollections and other website sourcesand would really like to expand this – put bluntly, so many of the people involved in events and services over the last 30 years have died, and so seemingly have details of their achievements.”
Precise information of what had been achieved and when had seemingly disappeared. Lunch Positive are seeking the help of the wider community to build a global timeline and a local history of HIV & AIDS.
“We’re keen to expand the local history of HIV in Brighton & Hove; any recollections and experiences through participation at events, being part of groups and services and through personal experiences would help build this history, celebration and remembrance of the life and achievements of our community.”
To take part in this please e mail the team behind this HIV History Project on: firstname.lastname@example.org
