- How different to today. Public Health England has reported the first sign of an end to the HIV epidemic in gay and bisexual men since it began all those years ago. There has been a 32% drop in new HIV diagnoses among gay men in London. This is remarkable and something I never thought I would see in my lifetime.
As 1987 rolled around, my daily routine became going to work then straight to the hospital to see Brian.

Our “buddy” became a friend and a huge support to us both. It was amazing how the community rallied to help.
