World AIDS Day: Celebrate Self-Care

[Image description: A rectangular graphic with a white background. Black and red text in the upper left corner reads "December 1" and "World AIDS Day." Underneath are two interlocking hands with a red ribbon wrapped around the left arm. To the right are thin vertical intersectional Pride stripes, separated in the center by black text which reads "Celebrate Self-Care," "Free HIV/HEP C Testing," "DIY self-care crafts," "TV show screenings," "Gift card giveaways," and "Safe sex kits." Below is smaller black text that reads "3-7 p.m. - QTPOC Films provided by Project Silk," "3-7 p.m. - HIV/HEP C/STI testing (ages 14-29) provided by Project Silk," "4-6 p.m. - HIV/HEP C testing (ages 30+) provided by Bradbury-Sullivan," and "4-6 p.m. - Self-Care Crafts provided by Bradbury-Sullivan." The logos for Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center and Project Silk Lehigh Valley are in the upper and lower right corners, respectively. Small colorful hearts, diamonds, and leaves surround the text.]

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center and its daily youth empowerment program Project Silk Lehigh Valley invite the community to celebrate self-care on World AIDS Day, which is Wednesday, December 1.

Knowing your status is self-care, and the center will provide free testing for HIV, Hepatitis C, and other STIs. Depending on age, community members will either test downstairs with Project Silk or upstairs with Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.

  • Project Silk testing for individuals ages 14 to 29 starts at 3 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m.
  • Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center testing for individuals ages 30 and older starts at 4 p.m. and ends at 6 p.m.

The event will include stations for DIY self-care crafts and safe sex kits on the main floor and screening of QTPOC (Queer and Trans People of Color) films and TV shows in the youth space downstairs (only for individuals ages 14 to 21). Project Silk will be giving away $25 gift cards for the first 15 community members ages 14 to 29 who get tested.
