World AIDS Day is held on the 1st of December each year. The day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV, and commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988.

Doors will open at 5:30pm for refreshments with the memorial commencing at 6:30pm. Our MC for the evening is Luke Gallagher, with guest speakers Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Honourable Ged Kearney, and Thorne Harbour Health Founding Member, Alison Thorne.

Performances from stage actor Stephen Mahy and songs from Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus will round out the evening. The heritage listed AIDS Memorial Quilts will also be on display.

The World AIDS Day Memorial event is a collaborative effort undertaken by Thorne Harbour Health, Living Positive Victoria, the AIDS Memorial Quilt Project, and Positive Women Victoria.

This free event is open to all. Attend in-person or register for an online Zoom link.

Doors open 5:30 pm for a 6:30 pm start.
