One thought on “AIDS Vigil to mark its 25th year

  1. Being part of the Aids Vigil singing with my group “GuysLikeUs” I was deeply moved by the numbers of persons in the audience and that after all the years of my attendance the vigil had lost none of its “sacredness” in remembering all my friends who died of Aids, this event is the highlight of my Pride Celebration.
    I was somewhat surprised to see so many Loo’s in the small park taking up a lot of good space.
