In a crisp fall wenning night, friends and strangers were standing in the circle, which in this time respected the quiet, silent and silent moments of living with AIDS or lost loved ones. Candles shining at the red ribbon memorial display, on the legislative steps of him.
They were on December 1 to mark the 20th anniversary of the World AIDS Day's 30th anniversary and the National Aboriginal AIDS Awareness week in Canada.
Because this group went around the circle, sharing stories about how AIDS touched the lives of their lives or their loved ones, the whole disgrace was a heavy subject. The accounts of the disorder were killed a long time ago before the disease's chance.
Through the "Know Your Position" campaign, the AIDS Vancouver Island urges people to examine and people request to avoid stigma and shame to speak openly about HIV / AIDS.
Research shows that 25 percent of people living with HIV in Canada are unaware that they have a virus because they have never been tested.
