The Sydney AIDS Candlelight Memorial is a time when members of the community can come together to reflect on and remember all those who have passed away from HIV/AIDS.

The event is held on International AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day, which is on the 3rd Sunday of May each year. In Sydney, the Memorial is presented by ACON and Positive Life NSW.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Sydney AIDS Candlelight Memorial on Sunday 19th May 2024 at the Eternity Playhouse in Darlinghurst. It was a poignant and beautiful event. Our appreciation goes to speakers Yvonne Weldon, Stephen Lunny, presenter Lyle Chan, vocalist Mary Kiani, and all the community members who read names from the remembrance list.
