We’ve been to this event in the past, and it’s a great way to educate people about AIDS, and to lend support as well.
World AIDS Day Tucson is an event held on December 1st to honor and celebrate a community of people living with and to educate about HIV/AIDS.
Events like this one, work to de-stigmatize HIV/AIDS in communities all over the world. The World AIDS Day Tucson committee is a group of community members and representatives from local non profits/businesses who are working to reduce new HIV infections and spread knowledge about HIV/AIDS.
And over at the Loft theater, you can see a powerful film “Broken Heart Land” at 7 p.m. : Broken Heart Land is a new documentary that explores the response of friends, family and community members to gay teen Zack Harrington’s suicide in Norman, Oklahoma in 2010. Our Calendar listing has more information on this film. Co-sponsor is the Southern AZ Aids Foundation (SAAF).
