Positive is an account of a special life fearlessly told, as well as a chronicle of an era. Fifteen years ago, HIV and AIDS meant one thing - death. In 1984 David Menadue was one of the first people to be diagnosed with HIV in Australia. He was just 30 years old and thought it unlikely he would make it to 40. He turned 50 last year and has been living with AIDS for longer than almost anyone else in this country...Positive is about many things: recent Melbourne history, the distress experienced as the gay community was decimated, and desire. But it is also a story about optimism and the ability to take things day by day. It is about continuing to live when everyone around you expects you to die.
