Thursday 1 December is a very special day as we celebrate the International Day for the Fight against HIV.
This year, the organization with the Sitges Town Council, under the slogan “Leave your footprint in the fight against HIV“, you can leave your printed footprint on a large canvas that will be on display all day at the Cap de la Vila. In addition, Colors Sitges Link volunteers will be at an information stand handing out red ribbons and information about our activities for people with HIV.
And in the evening, at 19:00h, we will offer a glass of solidarity cava to raise funds at the El Prado cinema, where the CineClub Sitges will dedicate its film session to this day with the screening of the film “Vivir Deprisa, amar despacio“, a French production that won the award for Best Actor Ex-Aequo at the Seville Festival for its two protagonists, also presented at the Cannes Festival, and many already consider this title to be the film that dignifies the suffering of AIDS.
The LGTBI community, mainly, lived the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s in a logical neurosis due to the drama of AIDS. In this extreme situation in which friends, neighbours, relatives, acquaintances and partners were dropping like flies, the option of establishing a sentimental relationship was enormously complicated.
Before the screening, at 20:00h, we will have a film forum entitled “Living with HIV“.
Will you join us?
