Body Positive Drop-in Centre

Body Positive, a peer support organisation for people living with HIV AIDS, established a Wellington drop-in centre on the corner of Courtenay Place and Tory Street in 2013 (closing in 2015). Just around the corner at 45 Tory Street (now Chow), was the location of the NZ AIDS Foundation's Awhina Centre which opened in August 1997. The centre is now located in Willis Street. In this recording Kate Leslie, founding Chair of the Foundation, talks about the early years of AIDS in New Zealand.

Cross the Tory Street / Courtenay Place intersection and continue walking to the St James Theatre. Just beyond that you will see the former Courtenay Place Men's Toilet.
