World AIDS Day

WORLD AIDS DAY is December 1st

Join The LOFT as we make time to honor those who have passed.  World AIDS Day marks the discovery of HIV/AIDS and the effect it has had on our community, the nation, and around the world.  

 We invite you to learn more with "40 Major Moments" an exploration of the earliest days when HIV/AIDS wreaked havoc in the gay community in the 1980s. We also have additional reading resources and information on support groups for those living with HIV, and for those who would like to get tested. If you should have questions or require help, please email: [email protected]
