Love, Loss & Life: Real Stories from the AIDS Pandemic: Kelly Hunter

Love, Loss & Life: Real Stories From The AIDS Pandemic

Mar 18 2023 • 10 mins

“It was profoundly moving that a bunch of people, pilloried by society and told that AIDS was their own fault, were utterly non-judgmental themselves.”

When Kelly Hunter’s close friends in the theatre began dying of AIDS related illness, she put her career on hold for two years to volunteer with the Terrence Higgins Trust. She used her theatrical contacts to raise money for AIDS charities and was the driving force behind some of the most memorable fundraising initiatives of the late 1980s.

This podcast series features stories taken from our first book, a collection of essays, reflections, and testimonies also entitled ‘Love, Loss & Life’ which you can buy here.

An audiobook is also available here.
