Congratulations to Cheryl Ware for the publication of ‘HIV Survivors in Sydney: Memories of the Epidemic’

Congratulations to Cheryl Ware for the publication of HIV Survivors in Sydney: Memories of the Epidemic (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019). This book excavates the intimate lives and memories of HIV-positive gay men in Sydney, focusing on the critical years between 1982 and 1996, when HIV went from being a terrifying unidentified disease to a chronic condition that could be managed with antiretroviral medication. Using oral histories and archival research, it explores how HIV-positive gay men navigated issues around disclosure, health, sex, grief, death, and survival. HIV Survivors in Sydney reveals how gay men dealt with the virus both within and outside of support networks, and how they remember these experiences nearly three decades later.
