The Birmingham HIV Living Archive launched on the 30th November at an event at The Vaults. Cllr Sue Anderson, Jenni Ord from the Heritage Lottery Fund and representatives from the Birmingham HIV Partnership - People Living With HIV User Group, spoke at the event and talked about the importance of projects like the archive and keeping HIV on the agenda in Birmingham.
Despite the bad weather lots of people attended the event which celebrated the achievement of people living with HIV in Birmingham and placed the city's journey with the virus firmly into its history.
People were encouraged to view the history exhibition and the touring exhibition listen to our interviewees talk about how HIV had impacted on them and how living HIV has changed for people in Birmingham over the last 30 years. Living Archive booklets and specially commissioned metal red ribbons were presented to those who had given their stories to thank them for their invaluable contribution to Birmingham's Heritage and to the city's education about the virus.
