On Watch Summary

On Watch: Views from the Lighthouse by Christopher Spence

Published to coincide with its 10th anniversary, this is an account of the history, philosophy and aims of the London Lighthouse, the HIV/AIDS centre, and of the broad issues with which it deals: the challenge for the gay community, the politics of the epidemic, society's attitudes to death and dying, and ways of making a lethal disease yield transforming and positive experiences. Including a foreword by Diana, Princess of Wales, who did so much to break down public fears about AIDS, the book also contains anecdotes about other celebrities who have supported the organization over the last decade. It combines narrative with philosophical and spiritual insights.
