Money raised will go to HIV Scotland
For a night packed with fun and good music, the LGBTQ+ Society will host an online concert from 8pm on World AIDS Day, to honour those living with HIV, LGBTQ+ hope to remember and fight for people affected by AIDS-related illnesses.
HIV Scotland provide support for those diagnosed with AIDS and educate people on contraception – comprehensive sex education in Scottish schools now looks to better prevent HIV. The money raised will generate from the LGBTQ+ Just Giving page.
“There’s a huge stigma around AIDS, especially affecting MLM relationships,” said Laur Petre, Gay Representative. “In reality, it can affect anyone. Being part of the gay community, I’ve seen men being pushed aside because they were HIV-positive and that’s definitely not what they need; they need support and understanding and not isolation.”
LGBTQ+ aim to get as many people engaged with the concert as possible – every amount raised makes a difference.
The event will stream live on www.sulgbtq.org/live from 8pm, 1st December. The line-up includes queer performers both in and out with the society.
