EPISODE 41: LIMERICK Fear and Contagion: HIV’s lessons

Two of the main themes to come out of the recent Coronavirus outbreak are fear and contagion, things that have been front and centre in the queer community for so long.

So we reached out to Adam Shanley from HIV Ireland on the subject of U equals U – Undetectable equals Untransmittable. This is something that’s spoken about quite regularly in queer communities but maybe not as top of mind in more mainstream society. We wanted to approach this in relation to the stigma, fear and panic that surrounds HIV and how we can learn from the historical and ongoing focus on their reduction, especially as we see these behaviours unfold with Corona.
