36 years of George House Trust

36 years of George House Trust

On this day in 1985, six gay #HIV activists founded Manchester AIDs-line, which later became George House Trust. 

That's 36 years of:

 HIV support,smashing stigma,  activism, challenging viewpoints and promoting change when necessary.

Since 1985, thanks to medical advancements and improved treatments, #HIV - and living with HIV -  has changed, although a major challenge  still exists around #HIV stigma and discrimination. 

Help us continue challenging stigma and supporting people who are living with #HIV :

One way is to donate financial support

Text MANCAIDS to 70085 to donate £3

On this anniversary, we would like to thank everyone who made a difference and who continues to make a difference to the lives of people living with HIV.
