To my surprise there was nothing up here in the Top End to actually mark the day.
A day or two before, a small group from the Northern Territory AIDS and Hepatitis Council put up a big red ribbon in front of the parliament house. To my understanding that was the only thing that actually happend as far as this special day is concerned.
Tim, I’m not surpised at what you experienced in Sydney.
We news photographers can only hope for best every time we hit the street.
If we are lucky we get lucky but many ocassions it could be negative.
