AIDS Day 2007: Understanding the symbolism of World AIDS Day


Our Youth, a Jersey City LGBTI youth organization, held its annual World AIDS Day celebration in December. The AIDS is a Drag, Wrap it Up! fundraising event gathered together some 20 performers—established artists and mentors in the community.

“World AIDS Day is a day to remember those who have passed,” Rob De Anthony, president and founder of Our Youth says, “It’s our own way to celebrate their life and spread acceptance, knowledge, and education.”
