I have been a volunteer, activist, and employee since 1983 in HIV, and before that in the Lesbian and Gay and other social activism movements. I have worked in the UK and internationally since the early 70’s in the LGBT and HIV sectors.


I have made my living as an actor, train driver, running telephone exchanges, as a restaurant and night club manager, antiques dealer, tour guide, sex worker, social worker, trainer, managing community-based projects and organizations, researcher, consultant, trainer.

From 2009 until 2017 I was working at GNP+ 


During  that time I coordinated the People Living with HIV Stigma Index (www.stigmaindex.org)  the GNP+ work on criminalisation of HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission, as well as setting up the Barring The Way To Health website and initiative which shows the most common legal and regulatory barriers to HIV testing, linkage to care and treatment access across Europe and in each individual European country, including how they affect particular key populations.  I have been living with HIV for about 30 years

I am from the UK and live in Amsterdam. I am always open to new offers and can be contacted on juliandragnew@gmail.com.
