Allow me to share the #REDxSUMMER as featured in an online LGBT Magazine by Mikee dela Cruz on Feb 24, 2014. I was interviewed and I am honored to share this with everyone.
Some highlights were:
#REDxSUMMER, an out-of-town summer event exclusive for people living with HIV (PLHIV), is slated on March 29 to 30. The event is an offshoot of #REDx, which was an exclusive Christmas event for PLHIVs held in Laguna.
In the end, “#REDxSUMMER hopes to strengthen old friendships and create new ones. #REDxSUMMER is about having fun. We plan to do this the minute the group leaves Manila until and after the event ends up North,” daddy Drew said. “We also strongly hope to drive a spirit of fun and camaraderie as we recognize the need for emotional and social support within the PLHIV community.
Already, #REDx has reached out to PLHIVs in other regions, and has sent invites to friends in Visayas and Mindanao, including in the cities of Bacolod, Cebu, Davao, General Santos and Cagayan De Oro. Some PLHIV friends from Singapore and Malaysia have also been invited. There are also plans to reach transgender PLHIVs.
