picGraeme Ellis, 1982, O'Leary, PEI

Born in Dunblane, PEI, at the time of his death he was a student at Michael's School of Hair Design, Halifax.

Ellis' death was not the first related to AIDS in Halifax, but he and partner Bob MacKay, who was a radio personality with CFDR, were well known and liked in the community. He was definitely the first 'club' member that everyone knew or knew about.
