LGBT Foundation's Let's Talk About Sex project documents the stories of people involved and affected by campaigns on sexual health sparked by the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. The project has recorded 45 interviews with a diverse range of individuals, including campaigners and activists involved in several grassroots initiatives that made Greater Manchester a pioneer of HIV prevention.

The Heritage Lottery funded project has also curated an exhibition showcasing striking visual materials produced to promote safer sex, an important part of Greater Manchester's LGBT heritage. The exhibit includes a specially commissioned short film that explores these campaigns through the experiences of several key activists, from the early 1980s up to the present day.
