Our trustee Jonathan Cooper OBE died suddenly on 18th September 2021.
His fellow trustees, our patrons and the AIDS Memory UK campaign team are saddened by the death of our sui generis and dear friend, a giant in human rights especially universal LGBTQ+ rights.
Working with Jonathan to deliver The AIDS Memorial was an honour. A passionate ally to HIV positive people since the 1980s, he was a man who changed the world. His advocacy for people living with HIV made lives better. He will be mightily missed.
With Doughty Street Chambers, we’ve created a memorial page where you can leave messages and thoughts. We’re also raising money for AIDS Memory UK, in memory of Jonathan.
Love, strength and courage to his husband Kevin Childs.
