Tribute to the Phil Carswell OAM

This week started with the sad news that longstanding activist and Founding President of the Victorian AIDS Council (now Thorne Harbour Health) Phil Carswell OAM died peacefully at his home in Brisbane. Phil leaves behind a remarkable legacy of advocating for the health, wellbeing, and the rights of our LGBTIQA+ communities. In particular, Phil played a vital leadership role in Australia’s role in responding to HIV and AIDS.

Joining Cal Hawk in the studio for this episode is Dr Adam Carr. Both Adam and Phil were a part of the Community Living Legends series last year as Thorne Harbour Health (formerly the Victorian AIDS Council) celebrated 40 years. Adam speaks to his 50-year friendship with Phil and reflects on Phil’s legacy as we listen to clips of Phil’s speech at the Ruby Red Ball in July of 2023 as well as part of his interview on JOY.
