World AIDS Day 2022

Each year, GMHC commemorates World AIDS Day on December 1 by remembering those who we have lost to AIDS-related complications, uplifting the lives of those living with and affected by HIV and AIDS, and recognizing our collective work continues.

The annual day of commemoration started in 1988 and we have annually participated in a variety of events.

Please join us on Thursday, December 1 for the Out of the Darkness World AIDS Day events which GMHC is a co-sponsor (see the flyer below).

At 6:00 pm, there is a candlelight vigil which begins at the NYC AIDS Memorial consisting of a few guest speakers and the lighting of candles. Then at 6:30 pm, the participants walk east on Greenwich Avenue and make a right on to Christopher Street and head to the gathering at St. John’s Lutheran Church that will feature guest speakers, singers, and performers, starting at 7:00 pm.

After the gathering ends at 8:30 pm, there will be a reception with light refreshments.
