Fighting For Our Lives, a history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Australia, focuses on the role played by affected communities in addressing the crisis, a side of the story that is often overlooked. Marginalised people - mostly gay men, sex workers and people who inject drugs - came together to form community organisations that gave them a voice in the corridors of power. They formed an unprecedented alliance with politicians and medical experts, a threeway partnership that made Australia's response to AIDS one of the most successful in the world. It's an inspirational story, one which takes place against a backdrop of harrowing illness and death. With lives and the survival of communities on the line, Fighting For Our Lives captures the highstakes drama of this extraordinary period by concentrating on the people at the centre of the struggle during the darkest years of the epidemic. It's an important story, and one that must never be forgotten.
