Join us for an evening with Jill Nalder, the inspiration behind Channel 4’s smash hit It’s a Sin, to celebrate her five-star memoir Love from The Pink Palace: Memories of Love, Loss, and Cabaret through the AIDS Crisis.


Jill will discuss the highs and lows of life in the 1980’s as the AIDS crisis emerged, the legacy her activism has created, and how her experiences were transformed into the critically acclaimed TV series It’s a Sin.

Jill’s memoir is filled with stories of injustice, stigma, and tragedy but also, above all else, love. Love which informed the drive for change, love which created communities of people fighting together, and the love for remembering this important history.

Book your place to find out how Jill’s story got the nation talking about HIV, and how you can #BeMoreJill too!
