Always Remember: 40 Years - 40 Objects and Images from the AIDS Epidemic, 1981-2021 Kindle Edition
A brief history of AIDS in Australia, expressed through forty objects and images - newspaper clippings, books, films, TV, music, memorials, activism and art. Not to mention badges and milk cartons. Allshorn tenderly recalls his own experiences and struggles. More broadly, Allshorn probes the meanings behind the many silences, exclusions and (mis)representation, while at the same time celebrating the heroic work of many ‘heroes of the epidemic’.

Reviewed in Australia on 6 January 2022
This book offers information and reminders of one of the most difficult times for many of us. So many friends and family lived with HIV/AIDS. So much bigotry in the community. So little understanding. The author has illustrated in words and pictures so much of what we lived with. A must read for younger LGBTQI+ people. They need to know this history.
