AIDS Candlelight Tribute

2023 marks the 40th anniversary of the first people in Aotearoa New Zealand to be identified as living with AIDS. In that same year (1983), the first AIDS Candlelight Memorials took place in San Francisco and New York City.

To mark these significant anniversaries, teamed up with filmmaker Peter Duncan to create an AIDS Candlelight Tribute featuring audio from previous Candlelight Memorial services combined with film footage shot in Wellington during 1993. This recording is dedicated to Cole Hampton, the host of Wellington's 2021 Candlelight Memorial who sadly passed away in 2022.
