In this seminar journalist and activist Dimitris Xanthoulis and novelist and filmmaker Panayotis Evangelidis share their recollections of an evening in the early 1980s when members of AKOE (the Greek Homosexual Liberation Movement) gathered to collect information about the new virus and organize the gay community.
