The 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day will be observed on Saturday, Dec. 1, in West Hollywood and at locations in Los Angeles.
World AIDS Day presents an opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV/AIDS and to remember those who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day. UNAIDS declared “Know Your Status” as the theme for this year’s World AIDS Day.
As part of the World AIDS Day observance, two panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt are on display at APLA Health’s Gleicher/Chen Health Center at 3743 S. La Brea Ave., in Los Angeles, and APLA Health’s West Hollywood office at 1151 N. La Brea Ave.
AIDSWatch, an electronic memorial to those lost to HIV, will be available for viewing on WeHoTV and projected on the exterior wall of the West Hollywood Library, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd., from Friday, Nov. 30, through Sunday, Dec. 2.
An annual candlelight vigil hosted by the Alliance for Housing and Healing will be held on Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. beginning at the northwest corner of Crescent Heights and Santa Monica boulevards, and ending at the West Hollywood City Council Chambers, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. Following the candlelight vigil, the annual Paul Andrew Starke Warrior Awards presentation and reception will take place at 7 p.m. in the council chambers.
The Warrior Awards will be given to exceptional employees and volunteers of local agencies that offer HIV/AIDS and substance abuse prevention and care. The guest speaker will be Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin. The event will also include multiple presentations on the fight against HIV/AIDS.
