AIDS Candle Light Memorial: St-Matthews-in-the-City

Mon 21 May 2007 In: HIV View at Wayback View at NDHA

With the theme 'Lighting the Path to a Brighter Future', on Sunday 20th May services around New Zealand united communities affected by HIV/AIDS. Events in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill presented speeches from leaders in the local fight against HIV/AIDS, messages from the Governor General, Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition, musical performances and Candle Lighting ceremonies. In Auckland, over 100 people attended St Matthews in the City's Candle Light Memorial - many more than in the last couple of years - and there were musical performances from Hadleigh Adams, Craig Webster, Larry Jenkins, Fiona Holding, The Taste of Africa and Diva Siva. It was also a chance to see pieces of the AIDS Memorial Quilt on display. GayNZ.com - 21st May 2007
