Adam Carr – Community Living Legend

Dr Adam Carr was a founding member of the Victorian AIDS Action Committee in 1983 and later served as President of the organisation in 1986-87 when it was the Victorian AIDS Council – today known as Thorne Harbour Health. He worked in gay community media from 1979 to 2001, including as editor of OutRage magazine.

Adam talks to Cal Hawk about his role in the community response to HIV and AIDS as well as his time in community media.

This episode is part of the Community Living Legends series, reflecting on a legacy of community-driven action to improve our health and wellbeing as Thorne Harbour Health celebrates its 40th Anniversary.
