LOS ANGELES (May 17, 2016) — AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, is proud to join the LGBTQ community in celebrating the 2016 Gay Pride season through its planned participation in two dozen Pride events across the country. As a longtime supporter of LGBTQ equality and the expansion of health care services to treat people living with HIV/AIDS, AHF will provide free condoms, information on STD prevention and treatment, and host free HIV testing at Pride celebrations nationwide.
AHF patients, volunteers, staff and members of Impulse Group will also march with its newly updated “One Comm(unity), One Love” Pride bus wrapped with smiling faces that represent the diversity of LGBTQ individuals and families. The bus is scheduled to appear in Pride parades in U.S. cities including Long Beach, CA (5/21-5/22); Los Angeles (6/12); Wilton Manors (6/18); Chicago, IL (6/26); San Diego (7/15-7/16); Oakland, CA (9/11); Dallas, TX (9/18); Atlanta, GA (10/8-10/9); and Las Vegas (10/21-10/23).
“We’re very excited to continue showing our support for the LGBTQ community at Pride celebrations across the country,” said AHF President Michael Weinstein. “AHF has long provided health care and pharmacy services for LGBTQ individuals living with HIV/AIDS and we will continue to stand with our patients in fighting for equal rights and expanded access to health care and medical treatment.”
AHF is proud to support the LGBTQ community through its national network of pharmacies, Out of the Closet Thrift Stores that offer free HIV testing, and specialized healthcare centers that offer medical care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS.
