Free tickets to tomorrow's Auckland launch of the World AIDS Day awareness campaign and a special screening of the acclaimed Judi Dench movie Philomena are still available. World AIDS Day is on 1 December and New Zealand will emphasise the global theme - Getting to Zero: Zero AIDS Deaths, Zero HIV Infections and Zero Discrimination against people living with HIV. Guest speakers tomorrow evening will include Dr. Peter Saxton, Director of the Gay Men's Sexual Health (GMSH) research group.  A video of stories of people relating their experience of HIV-related stigma will also screen and one of the participants, Charlie Tredway, will speak about his personal experiences. Last year, new HIV diagnoses were at their highest level since 2008 and most of those contracting the disease in New Zealand are gay and bisexual men. The launch and movie will kick off at 5.30pm tomorrow in the Ac ademy Cinema at the Auckland Central Public Library. The NZAF is issuing a general invitation to people to attend, you can reserve seats here.
