Red Whistle marks 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day with #XXXWAD

The Red Whistle holds #XXXWAD, a series of curated events intended to highlight the need for strengthened partnerships to “kiss AIDS goodbye.”

Just as the world marks World AIDS Day, the 30th time it does this December 1, 2018 to highlight the continuing devastating effect of HIV, The Red Whistle holds #XXXWAD, a series of curated events intended to highlight the need for strengthened partnerships to “kiss AIDS goodbye.”

The Red Whistle particularly partnered with Project Headshot Clinic, a digital campaign that uses online profile photos to deliver advocacy messages.

In a statement given to Outrage Magazine, Project Headshot Clinic stressed that particularly this year’s photo campaign wants to highlight the need for collaboration. Therefore, in use are bright lights fashioned into three intersecting Xs as foreground and backdrop in the profile photos of the advocates. These three Xs represent “the intersections needed to effectively fight to end AIDS.” The headshots will be launched online on midnight of December 1.

Volunteers and ambassadors will also be part of the official Metro Manila World AIDS Day 2018 commemorative event on Saturday, December 1 to be held at Vista Mall in Taguig City.

The Red Whistle will cap off the day with a fundraising party at Nectar Nightclub at the Fort Strip, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

More events are lined up all throughout the first half of December 2018 in an extended commemoration of this milestone. There will be an XXX Art Installation unveiling/activity on December 1 and 2 with partner NGO CAMP (Culture and Arts Managers of the Philippines) at the Quezon City Hall grounds (for more information on this, coordinate with Ian Felix Alquiros at 0917-545-7556).

On December 8 and 9, partner Beyond Yoga will host “Move x Heal”, a workshop on movement as therapy, at Beyond’s Rockwell Center studio in Makati City (for more information on this, coordinate with Benedict Bernabe at 0917-826-6169).

The series will close with “Celebrity Bartender Throwdown”, another benefit event in partnership with Drink Manila on December 15, Saturday, 8:00PM at Pineapple Lab in Makati City.
