National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
TODAY! And everyday. Every person, every body, every gender, every ability, every difference, every ethnicity, every one of us must be aware of our status and how to remain HIV negative or live positive and center ourselves and our health.
Visit the National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day website. Find a location to get tested for FREE in under 1 hour (some places even less) here.
Find specific statistics regarding HIV rates among communities of Color in the US based on gender, prevention, and need. This link is from AJ.
LatiNegr@s, Latinos, Asian, Native, and Caribbean peoples please don't wait until our "official" day of awareness. Everyday is an opportunity to KNOW your status. If you haven't been tested you DON'T know your status. YES that includes you who are reading this who identify as "virgins." National Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is June 8. October 15 is National Latino HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. National Asian & Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is May 19. And National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is March 20. The day is TODAY for all of us.
