We take a closer look at Australia’s history of dealing with HIV and its representations in media and literature over the decades.

As we enter an era where treatments are becoming more effective, the concept of U=U (Undetectable = Untransmissible) is common knowledge in queer circles, and mRNA vaccines show promise for preventative measures, our relationship with HIV is evolving.

The panel discusses the impact this has had on how HIV is represented in the media in Australia, while looking to international representations of the AIDS crisis and how well they serve Australia given our unique positioning in the history of the pandemic.
