Equality & Diversity


Channel 4’s powerful new drama It’s a Sin depicts the lives of a group of young gay men during the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s.

As part of LGBT+ History Month, we explore gay men’s sexual health in the decades running up to the emergence of the disease and find out how HIV/AIDS sparked a dramatic new wave of activism.

Our guest speakers are Dr Richard McKay (Department of History and Philosophy of Science and author of Patient Zero and the Making of the AIDS Epidemic) and PhD student George Severs (Faculty of History).
