The H in HIV Cotton Tote

The H in HIV Cotton Tote

WE WILL NEVER FORGET. 40 years ago, we heard rumours, whispers and misinformation about the first cases of a “gay cancer” spreading among young gay men in the US. We went on to lose an entire generation who we will never forget.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the most tragic chapter in our history, The LGBTQ+ Shop have launched this tote bag with 100% OF PROFITS GOING TO THE SUSSEX BEACON, who provides specialist care and support for people living with HIV. Our La! range of t-shirts have raised money for this amazing charity, and we want this design to raise even more!

We have one fact to discuss, undetectable = untransmittable. We are determined to help end the stigma, which is where the slogan on this t-shirt was formed! We saw an image from the 1980's where it was written on a placard at a protest demanding people with AIDS were treated with dignity.

The reason we choose The Sussex Beacon was a purely personal one. They are a wonderful Brighton based organisation which provides specialist care and support for people living with HIV and they have helped a number of friends of the team at The LGBTQ+ Shop.
