What if AIDS never happened?
The coronavirus has shown the world what a pandemic looks like. Ordinary citizens have felt it in every part of their daily lives. But the LGBTQ+ community, and gay men in particular, have lived through a pandemic within living memory. More than just lives, the queer community lost a whole generation of our elders: the artists, future politicians, community organisers, and older voices to guide younger ones.
In pseudo-documentary style, The Fathers Project imagines a world in which AIDS never happened, charts the creation of “queer colonies” and posits some fascinating “what ifs” about the future that never was.
Join us afterwards for a panel discussion to dissect and daydream, featuring Chase Ledin of the University of Edinburgh, and Stephen Quinn, performance artist.
