United in Anger at Number 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, 1 November 2017, from £0.00 - Book now

With funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the LGBT Foundation’s Let’s Talk About Sex project is documenting the history of sexual health awareness and campaigning, and recording the personal testimonies of those involved. This year marks three decades of local organising and community activism in Greater Manchester sparked by the AIDS crisis, and the project will result in an exhibition showcasing the rich histories of activism and campaigning around safer sex and sexual health in the region.

The project is also organising this special screening of United in Anger: A History of ACT UP, an inspiring documentary about the international direct action advocacy group AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, directed by Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman, and bringing together the oral histories of members of ACT UP alongside rare archival footage.

The event is introduced by former ACT UP activist and University of Manchester lecturer Dr Monica Pearl.

The event is free, but booking is highly advised.
