Join us on June 15th for a fabulous evening of fine wines, great beer and delicious foods in support of LGBTQ+ Social Health Programs at The AIDS Network!
As the lives of people living with HIV have improved dramatically over these past 30 + years primarily because of tremendous advances in treatment, we find there are now more needs in the populations at risk of acquiring HIV, hepatitis C, other infections or death by overdose and suicide.
One group is LGBTQ+ youth who face higher rates of suicide and are often at greater risk because of stigma, social isolation, trauma and discrimination. Last year, we at The AIDS Network decided to formally reach out to this population and embrace our strategic plan goal of strengthening our partnerships and collaborative efforts by sponsoring the Queer Trans Youth Collaborative, a network of service providers serving youth.
This month our Board of Directors approved the establishment of a new fund to support social health programs for LGBTQ youth. Funds raised will go toward establishing new opportunities for youth at risk in Hamilton, Halton, Haldimand, Norfolk and Brant such as social outings, support groups and educational events.
We hope you will join us on this journey to support this very worthy cause that will literally save lives. To purchase a ticket to attend Chris and John’s fabulous evening click here https://www.bruha.com/event/3452
