World AIDS Day is an opportunity to remember those we have lost and support our whānau living with HIV. Red Friday is The New Zealand AIDS Foundation’s biggest community fundraiser. Every year they challenge New Zealanders to get together with their friends, colleagues and whānau on November 29th to host a RED themed event that raises money and awareness for World AIDS Day on Sunday December 1st.

Gus Fisher Gallery will be participating in Red Friday (Friday 29 November 2019) to raise funds for the New Zealand AIDS Foundation and to fight stigma against people living with HIV. Visit the gallery between our opening hours 10:00am - 5:00pm, bring a gold coin, or donate online, and receive a complimentary tea or coffee courtesy of Kōkako.

You can donate here.

While new medications mean that people living with HIV live long and healthy lives, the stigma surrounding HIV can still be deadly. Almost 50% of New Zealanders wouldn't let a child they know play with an HIV positive child. Over 40% of New Zealanders would be uncomfortable eating food prepared by someone living with HIV. Over 88% of New Zealanders wouldn't be comfortable having a relationship with someone living with HIV.

There will be free info packs on HIV available to take away with you. For more information on Red Friday and World AIDS Day, see here.
