Fashion, drama, and fun in support of HIV at RED A Positive Day (St. Paul's Hospital)
Fashion, drama, music, and HIV collide at “RED A Positive Day!” and it’s all for a great cause.
The show was written by Vancouver’s Dean Thullner, a 53-year-old gay man who has lived with HIV since being diagnosed in the 1980s. The 120 member cast of Vancouver designers, models, dancers, musicians, politicians, activists, and advocates will take the audience through theatrical journey following a day in life of two people living with HIV/AIDS.
Proceeds from the event will go to Positive Living BC, the province’s largest provider of support and services for residents living with HIV and AIDS. The partnership came after Thullner was shown the plight of those living with HIV and AIDS on the street, and wanted to extend the same helping hand he received from organizations like St. Paul’s Hospital.
