TODAY: B RIGHT ON LGBT Festival: HIV History Day and Community Meal

Besi Besemar February 9, 2017

As part of LGBT History Month during February, local HIV community groups and organisations are staging an HIV History Day in the Phil Starr Pavilion on New Steine Gardens tomorrow, Friday February 10.

This is an event for all the community, remembering how HIV has affected us and where we’re at now. It will be open from 11am until 4pm, and people can just drop in.

There will be information stalls and displays from local HIV community groups and organisations, the opportunity to meet people involved in running HIV groups and services, Radio Reverb HIV recordings, an HIV History Wall for people to share their stories and recollections, interesting talks and information on HIV activism, and a space to share your suggestions for future events.

Lunch Positive, the charity that provides a weekly HIV Lunch Club will be serving an all-day freshly prepared community meal from 12 noon, and refreshments in a café area where there will be plenty of tables and chairs.

There is no charge for this meal, donations are welcome and for people to ‘pay as you feel’.

Organisations involved in staging the HIV History Day include Community HIV Specialist Service, Lunch Positive, LGBT Community Safety Forum, Martin Fisher Foundation, Peer Action, Radio Reverb, Sussex Beacon and THT South.
