HIV+Me showcases three ordinary people living with HIV and their extraordinary stories in three beautifully shot short films.
Paul remembers the lovers and friends he lost whilst fighting and campaigning from a grotty basement just off Canal Street.
Mark revisits the squat he used to call home on Claremont Road and reflects how a positive diagnosis marked the beginning of a new life.
And Yvonne recalls a lifetime of hiding in the shadows before she found something inside so strong that now helps her help others.
HIV+Me is part of In Equal Parts – a community-led creative outreach programme tackling HIV stigma and shame delivered in conjunction with award-winning show First Time. HIV+Me is produced by Dibby Theatre and is filmed and edited by Boca films. The project is supported by Arts
Council England and is delivered in partnership with George House Trust.
HIV+ Me will be screened by Theatre in the Mill on 1st December 2021, World AIDS Day. We invite you to join us for this FREE online screening by clicking the link below and booking to receive the streaming link. Scroll down for details and running time.
