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

At the memorial, names are read out by a cross section of the community, including family members, partners, young and old.

The annual AIDS Candlelight Memorial is now held on International Remembrance Day, which is on the 3rd Sunday of May each year.

The next memorial in Sydney will be on Sunday 20 May 2018. 

Guest speaker: Professor Anthony Kelleher, Program Head Immunovirology and Pathogenesis Program, Kirby Institute

Featuring a special performance by the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir. 

We hope you can join us.
