Lgbtq+ History Club #8
Join us for the eighth edition of Brighton's LGBTQ+ history club.

We are totally thrilled to be welcoming Simon Watney to speak at the club on Sunday, June 25th.

Simon Watney has a long-established reputation in the field of HIV/AIDS as a writer, founder of numerous charities and not-for-profit companies, educator and service provider. From 1985 to 89, he was the founding chair of the Terrence Higgins Trusts Health Education Group, where he oversaw the development of the trusts pioneering HIV-prevention campaigns. From 1988 to 95 he wrote a respected monthly column on HIV/AIDS issues in Britains leading gay magazine, Gay Times; in 1990 he was a co-founder of the activist group OutRage.

His principal publications on HIV/AIDS are Policing Desire: Pornography, AIDS and the Media, Practices of Freedom: Selected Writings on HIV/AIDS, and Imagine Hope: AIDS and Gay Identity. He was awarded the 2001 Pink Paper Annual Lifetime Achievement Award, London, for his long campaigning for lesbian and gay rights and the rights of those affected by HIV and AIDS. Openly HIV-positive, he was a trustee of the charity Crusaid from 2007 to 2010, with a particular interest in questions of AIDS and poverty in the UK. Simon is also a widely published art historian and was a senior lecturer in art history at the University of Westminster.

We are delighted to be working with Terrence Higgins Trust trust to co-present this session.
