World AIDS day
The Brighton and Hove World AIDS Day Community Partnership is proud to announce the plans for this year’s World AIDS Day.
In addition to the vigil on 1 December, community-focused activities and events have been organised by members of the Community Partnership. Brighton & Hove City Council has announced it is honoured to be flying the Red Ribbon flag from the town halls for the second time to mark World AIDS Day. The red ribbon is an important symbol of awareness. Its display is just one means of demonstrating a commitment to the fight against HIV and to remember that 40 years ago Brighton & Hove lost its first citizen to AIDS.
The Brighton AIDS Memorial will be proudly displaying two UK AIDS Memorial Quilts, last seen in the city at the Corn Exchange in June 1993. Alongside the quilts on display, four stories curated by the project will give a glimpse into the lives of some of the remembered.
