Radical Acts: AIDS Activism Talk

27th June 2024

Join author George Severs and activist Mick Ward to talk about AIDS Activism at the next Queer History Club.

George’s recently published book, Radical Acts, is a detailed history of the radical HIV / AIDS movement in England. It draws on activist campaign literature, broadcast media and oral history interviews, breaking new ground by studying everyday activism alongside marches and protests.

Mick Ward is the co-founder of the AIDS activist group ACT UP Leeds who organised actions, demonstrations and protests through the late 1980s and early 90s.

George and Mick will be in conversation, giving national and local perspectives on AIDS activism. George also will be signing copies of his book, Radical Acts which will be available to buy on the night.
