World AIDS Day Exhibit

Please check out the World AIDS Day Exhibit on the 2nd floor featuring items from our GLBTQ Archives and General Collection. Held annually on December 1, World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to join in the fight against HIV/AIDS by showing their support for people living with HIV/AIDS and commemorating those who have passed away. Many people show support on World AIDS Day by wearing a red ribbon, the international symbol of HIV awareness and support.
