‘HIV BLIND DATE‘ is a theatre dating- show for people living with HIV / HEP to share the realities of life, love and struggle. Together we will vejazzle stigma, expose pharmaceutical greed and and revels in the anger, sweatiness and fabulous fierceness of the global HIV+ community. So often, we are stigmatised in our society; treated as passive recipients of resources, or silenced and invisibilized altogether. So in typical AIDS COALITION TO UNLEASH POWER (ACT UP) style, full of cabaret, mischief, romance and flair – HIV BLIND DATE celebrates our HIV+ community and everyone committed to ending the pandemic.

HIV Blind Date started in East London’s very special queer club ‘The Glory’ supported by ‘Aids Coalition to Unleash Power’ (ACT UP LONDON) and a wide range of HIV community groups across the UK. Since then the show has been requested in a wide range of clubs, hospitals and community groups and next month is our biggest show yet – we have been asked to do a show to open the International AIDS Conference 2016 in Durban, South Africa!
