Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Dr. Peter

The Broadcast Tapes of Dr. Peter: Screening and Talkback

It all started on CBC Television evening news on September 10, 1990, with these words from Dr. Peter Jepson-Young, BSc'79, MD'85: "I'm going to be introducing you to someone with AIDS to help provide a name, a face, and an identity to this disease. The person I'm going to be introducing you to is myself. I'm a doctor, but I'm also a patient - a patient with AIDS."

For many people, the Dr. Peter Diaries was the first introduction to someone with AIDS - and to someone who was openly gay. Over the next two years, to within two weeks of his death, 111 weekly episodes of the Diaries were aired. The Diaries were so successful that a documentary compilation, The Broadcast Tapes of Dr. Peter, was nominated for an Academy Award in 1994.

Join UBC Alumni Affairs, the UBC Faculty of Medicine and the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation for a special evening celebrating the 20th anniversary of the debut of the Dr. Peter Diaries and the 25th anniversary of his graduation from UBC Medicine. After an exclusive screening of the acclaimed documentary, there will be a talkback session featuring some of his closest friends and supporters.

About the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation

Before his death, Dr. Peter established the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation with a mission to provide care for people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, the Dr. Peter Centre is recognized locally and globally for its integrated model of HIV/AIDS healthcare. The Centre brings together diverse individuals with diverse health issues in addition to living with HIV/AIDS - experiences of trauma, discrimination because of sexual orientation and gender identity, serious mental illness, longstanding addictions, and homelessness.

Twenty years ago, Dr. Peter inspired a generation to change the way they thought about HIV/AIDS. Today, the Dr. Peter Centre is inspiring a new generation of HIV/AIDS healthcare. The Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation's vision for the next twenty years is to make a significant contribution to changing the world of HIV/AIDS care.

Dr. Peter's legacy is ours to continue.
