In this podcast Kate Leslie remembers Bruce Burnett - an early AIDS educator and activist in New Zealand.
Bruce returned to New Zealand from San Francisco in 1983. With the help of Kate, Ray Taylor, Simon Rosser and others they setup the AIDS Support Network, which later turned into the New Zealand AIDS Foundation. You can also hear Bruce Burnett talking in an interview recorded a few months before his death on 1 June 1985.
