It's World AIDS Day

AIDS. It's such an easy topic to neglect, and yet such a fatal one to neglect. It is absolutely loaded with stigma, controversy and fear, so naturally, we here at Side Street are fascinated by it. It is in this spirit that we think a day devoted to talking about it and REMEMBERING it is so crucial, as the second it fades from our day-to-day consciousness it becomes shrouded in ignorance and discrimination, and, of course, these are the conditions in which it proliferates. So not only will we be wearing our red ribbons today, but we'll also be bringing the topic of AIDS up in conversation. We hope you'll do the same.

If you're drawing a blank right now, we urge you to read this story that we did with the AIDS Trust of Australia and, well, become smarter while you're at it.
