To mark World AIDS Day 2018, The Rainbow Project in Northern Ireland will be inviting everyone to their Foyle centre at 12.00PM, before heading to the Peace Bridge at 12.15PM, to drop a rose, and say a few words in memory of all those lost to HIV/AIDS, and to stand in solidarity with all those currently living with HIV/AIDS.
Afterward at 1.00PM they’ll be screening “Becoming Cherrie” a short documentary created by Nicky Larkin, and starring drag-queen, Cherrie on Top, as she discusses being gay, HIV+ and a drag queen in Northern Ireland.
Following that there’ll be a Q&A with filmmaker, Nicky Larkin, and star, Cherrie on Top.
They will also be facilitating a workshop from 2.30PM on HIV/AIDS Representation in the Media.
There will also be rapid HIV & syphilis testing available throughout the day, for men who have sex with men (this is inclusive of transgender men), trans women, and non-binary individuals, over the age of eighteen years old.
If you or representatives from your organisation would like to attend this event, please RSVP to Leo Lardie via phone (028 90 319 030) text (079 04 864 861) or preferably e-mail
