We Were Here

ABC2 June 3, 2012

We Were Here documents the coming of what was called the 'Gay Plague' in the early 1980s. The documentary focuses on five individuals - all of whom lived in San Francisco prior to the epidemic. Their lives changed in unimaginable ways when their beloved city changed from a hotbed of sexual freedom and social experimentation into the epicentre of a terrible sexually transmitted plague. Broadcast as part of ABC's Sunday Best.

The first diagnosis of AIDS in Australia was made at St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney's Darlinghurst in November 1982. The patient was a 27-year-old gay New Yorker visiting Sydney. The doctors did not know what caused the disease or how it was spread and they discharged the man back into the promiscuous streets of 1980's gay Sydney. Rampant is the story of AIDS in Australia, and how our response to the disease - so radically different to that in the USA and other countries with conservative governments - made us world leaders in controlling the virus, which had the potential to become a plague.
