The last year has been a lively year in British politics. Parliament triggered Article 50, the country voted (again) in a dramatic general election and, to top it off, the Cabinet had a row over chlorinated chicken.

It was a day where we could remember the people we had lost to AIDS in the past year, colleagues, friends and family members.
