Join Divas and Doctors at the 2012 All Souls Procession

Posted on Fri, Oct 26, 2012 at 10:17 AM

"Divas and Doctors" is the theme for the AIDS Ribbon Tucson's "AIDS Entry" walk at this year's All Souls Procession on Sunday, Nov. 4. Ribbon is reaching out to the community to reach out to more volunteers who would like to join them in their walk.

"We will be paying tribute to drag queens and performers, as well as those in the medical profession who have given so much of themselves in the fight against HIV/AIDS," said Jeffrey Scott Brown, one of the faces of AIDS Ribbon Tucson.

Along the route, which is now (because of the modern streetcar construction) from Congress Street and 4th Avenue to Mercado San Agustin on West Congress Street and Avenida Convento, Ribbon participants will collect written prayers from spectators to then burn them in a ceremonial urn onstage, and then hold up a huge red ribbon, which symbolizes HIV/AIDS awareness.

The organization wants to remind the community that HIV/AIDS affect thousands of people in Tucson, and millions around the world.

Brown would love for everyone who has been touched by the disease, and even those who haven't, to join them at the procession and remind everyone that HIV/AIDS is not necessarily a death sentence anymore. With support from friends, family and organizations such as AIDS Ribbon Tucson, people have been able to live with it and make a difference in others' lives.

If you would like to volunteer with AIDS Ribbon Tucson message Brown on Facebook, and he will give you more information. The color theme this year is white, so wear white clothing!
