Gay men and AIDS in the 1980s
In this talk Professor Matt Cook, Birkbeck, University of London, explores the relationship between the capital, queer life and the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. Matt looks at ways in which perceptions and experiences of the city changed in this period – and most especially for gay men.
