In the light of the evening, friends and strangers stood in a circle holding hands – the moment of silence, singing and honor – for lovers living with AIDS or lost. In addition, in the steps of the legislature, the candles shivered in the red ribbon commemoration.
They were there on December 1st to celebrate the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day and the 20th anniversary of the National Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week in Canada.
While the group wandered around the circle sharing stories about AIDS's lives or how their loved ones touched their lives, stamping was a heavy theme all over the world. The accounts were shared about how the stamps died long before the disease reached chance.
With the için Know your situation kaçın campaign, AIDS Vancouver Island urges people to be tested and to avoid people stigmatizing and shameful about HIV / AIDS.
Research shows that 25 percent of people living with HIV in Canada are unaware that they have no virus because they are not tested at all.
