The support of the Canada-UK Foundation enabled Andrew to explore the Archives Gaies du Québec, a charitable organisation that seeks to document the history of the Québécois LGBT community.

This resource gave Andrew access to undiscovered material and information about film directors and cinematic trends that have expanded his research into the ways in which HIV/AIDS impacted Quebec.

Andrew was also able to interview the team behind VIHsibilité, a film project based at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM).

VIHsibilité investigates and facilitates cinematic testimony of Canadians and Quebeckers living with HIV/AIDS, making it a unique historical document for researchers like Andrew.
