Join the ‘BANG BUS – World AIDS Day Special’ an immersive theatrical bus-tour of London journeying through the decades and places to bring the history of HIV+ in London to life. The BANG BUS is a literal and metaphorical vehicle for creative and radical social change. With the nurses, community activists and surprise guests at the heart of changing the HIV+ epidemic the BANG BUS – World AIDS Day Special’ serves to harness history to strengthen the fight today to protect the NHS and demand a permanent AIDS Memorial in London. Read more about the BANG BUS here!

1986 – Remember when Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police James Anderton, backed by Margaret Thatcher, said “homosexuals, drug addicts and prostitutes who had HIV/AIDS were – swirling in a human cesspit of their own making”?

1987 – Remember when every single household got a ‘AIDS – Don’t Die of Ignorance’ leaflet through their door?

1988 – Remember when ‘Section 28’ prevented schools from teaching about homosexuality and how in 2008 HIV+ children were turned away from schools?

1991 – Remember when Whitney Houston led thousands of Londoners to Trafalgar Square as part of the epic HIV – Vigil?

2014 – Remember UKIP’s Nigel Farage saying ‘Frankly, HIV+ migrants should be the last people we allow into Britain’?

2016 – Remember how women, trans, Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) stripped naked to protest against Gilead’s pharmaceutical greed?

2017 – Remember how successes like the introduction of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PREP) has halted diagnoses amongst gay men today but HIV+ stigma for heterosexuals is still as isolating as ever?

Everyday – Remember how National Health Service (NHS) nurses, doctors and users continually put their lives on the line to protect the HIV+ community?

Remember the tragedy, sex, desire, isolation, activism, hate and love which have made the story of the HIV+ epidemic at the heart of the story of modern London?

Profits go to ‘Keep our NHS Public’ and the ‘John Mordaunt Trust’.

Mega thanks to ‘Positively UK’, ‘Positive East’, ‘ACT UP LONDON’, ‘Stop AIDS’, ‘Naz Project London’, ‘Eastside Community Heritage‘, ‘Bishopsgate Institute’, ‘London Metropolitan Archives’ and all HIV+ related organisations involved in the curation so far. Get involved at queertoursoflondon@gmail.com

Get in touch with queertoursoflondon@gmail.com /www.queertoursoflondon.com with any requests or to get involved. The bus is fully wheelchair accessible - if you have any accessibility requirements please get in touch ASAP.
