Summary
Inspirational story of communities directly affected by the AIDS crisis in Australia. Against a harrowing backdrop of illness and death, fear and anger, hate and discrimination, they bravely took action. During the darkest years of the epidemic, marginalised communities - mostly gay men, sex workers and people who inject drugs - came together to from organisations that gave them a voice in the corridors of power. They built an unprecendent alliance that made Australia's response to AIDS one of the most successful in the world. Fighting for Our Lives captures the high-stakes drama of this extraordinary period and the stories of the people at the very centre of a life-or-death struggle. It is a gripping read, an importuning story, and one that must never be forgotten
