This is the second episode in the VAC Legacy Series. As Victoria started to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, the advocacy and activism of the Victorian AIDS Council (VAC) was complemented by the rise of groups like the AZT taskforce and the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power – ACT UP.

In this second episode of the VAC Legacy Series on Well, Well, Well, Cal Hawk talks with longstanding HIV/AIDS and LGBTIQ activists Jamie Gardiner, Chris Gill, Phil Carswell, Colin Batrouney, and Alison Thorne to take a closer look at the community action of the time. They share their experiences as well as pay tribute to some of those people who played a vital role in mobilising our community but are sadly no longer with us – such as Keith Harbour.

For more from the VAC legacy series , continue to listening to Well, Well, Well as we’ll air additional episodes in the lead up to VAC’s 35th birthday later in the year.
