The AIDS Lady
Dec. 05, 2014
Through her theatrical performance, De Luna brings awareness of HIV to the east side. Free, fast, and confidential HIV screenings will be available throughout the event.
Anna De Luna talks about her work: "I created The AIDS Lady to reach out to teens and young adults - to let them know it's ok to openly talk about sex and remove some of the stigma/misconceptions they may have. I also wanted to confidentially share some of very human stories of the HIV positive colleagues I served as an educator/tester in the past 8 years- to put a face on the virus and remove judgement of those infected. I wanted to think outside the box and figure out a way I could remove fear and encourage HIV testing through the use of theater."
Sponsored by ProjectHOPE and StART Place with support from the San Antonio Latino/a Theatre Alliance.
