Miami, FL 33132AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, is hosting four free, high-profile community concerts in the U.S in addition to numerous commemoration events around the world to mark World AIDS Day, formally observed each year on December 1st.
The Adrienne Arscht Center for The Performing Arts of Miami Dade County will be the venue for AHF’s MIAMI World AIDS Day concert on Saturday, December 7th (8:00 pm -11:00 pm; media check in @ 6:00 pm) with performances by India, Amara La Negra and Todrick Hall.
In addition to Miami, AHF commemorated World AIDS Day with free concerts in Dallas—with special guest Diana Ross (Nov. 29), Los Angeles (Dec. 1), and Atlanta (Dec. 5), as well as nearly 100 commemoration events and observations in many of the 43 countries where AHF provides services.
This year, AHF honored “Our Champions” at all its U.S. World AIDS Day events. “Our Champions” are a select group of individuals, both living and dead, who have made a profound impact in the decades long fight against HIV and AIDS and these champions include local community advocates, important figures like Princess Diana, Connie Norman, Elizabeth Taylor, Larry Kramer, Pedro Zamora, AHF co-founder Chris Brownlie and others who will be recognized, remembered and honored nationwide.
At the Miami concert, a special commemoration of ‘Champion’ Pedro Zamora will be observed to mark the 30th anniversary of the November 11, 1989 passing of the Miami native and groundbreaking MTV ‘Real World: San Francisco’ star—the first openly HIV-positive individual to appear in the cast of a national television program.
AHF staff and volunteers will be on hand at many of these events with services including free HIV testing, interactive sessions to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS, and more. Under its “Keep the Promise” banner, AHF’s World AIDS Day events celebrate the progress made and recognize community advocates who continue to champion the fight against HIV/AIDS. The events also serve as a reminder that there’s still much work to be done globally in fighting this epidemic.
