Sunfest is an annual multicultural music festival held in Victoria Park in downtown London. The festival draws tens of thousands of people every year from all over southwestern Ontario.

There will be educational games tailored toward youth and inspiring stories and art work from people living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs).We also provide free condoms and lubricant.

Pride London Festival 2012

Pride in London provides an annual opportunity to generate celebratory, cultural, artistic and educational events which affirm the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, trangender and two-spirited people and supporters through activities which promote unity, inclusion and awareness of sexual and gender diversity.

Regional HV/AIDS Connection attends Pride every year. Our presence affirms RHAC’s history as an organization born out of the struggles of the gay community in the early 80s relative to HIV/AIDS.

We set up a booth the final weekend of Pride where we provide free educational resources about HIV/AIDS, STIs and hepatitis C as well as free condoms and lubricant. Each year, we partner with Options Anonymous HIV Testing Clinic to provide HIV testing opportunities.

No name. No waiting. Know your HIV status.

Options Anonymous HIV Testing Clinic will be in Victoria Park on the north side of the bandshell the following dates and times:

  • Saturday, July 28 from 1-6 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 29 from 12-4 p.m.

For more information, please contact Kevin Murphy at 519-434-1601.
