Pride event this weekend

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#LBPrideAIDS
Healthcare Foundation
(AHF), the largest global AIDS organization,
is proud to take part in the 2016
Long Beach Pride
Festival and Parade May 21st-22nd. AHF will offer
free 1-minute HIV tests, free condoms, and safer sex information at Booth
G-300
on both festival days from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Pride attendees
will have the opportunity to sign on to AHF’s advocacy initiatives,
including its California ballot measure aimed at curbing the exorbitant
prices charged by pharmaceutical companies for lifesaving HIV and Hep C
drugs. Representatives from AHF Pharmacy will also be on site to promote
their services.

AHF clients, volunteers, staff and members of Impulse
Group
will also march with a newly updated Pride bus during the Long
Beach Pride Parade on Sunday. The bus is wrapped with a rainbow of
smiling faces, representing the diversity within the LGBTQ community.
The “One Comm(unity), One Love” slogan communicates the sense of
strength and unity among LGBTQ individuals, especially in the face of
the HIV/AIDS virus that disproportionately affects their community.

“AHF is proud to show its support for the LGBTQ community in Long Beach
this weekend,” said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS
Healthcare Foundation. “AHF has been a longtime advocate for broader
access to healthcare and medical treatment for LGBTQ individuals and
will continue to stand with our patients in fighting for equal rights
and against discrimination.”

AHF is proud to support the LGBTQ community through its national network
of pharmacies, Out of the Closet Thrift Stores that offer free HIV
testing, and specialized healthcare centers that offer medical care and
treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS. For more information on AHF
