The organizers of the International AIDS Vigil welcome anyone who may have experienced a personal loss or losses due to HIV/AIDS to attend a public memorial, Thursday, August 17, 9PM, at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, part of the XVI International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2006).
The event is expected to attract many of the political, scientific and community leaders working on the front
lines of the pandemic as well as a wide representation of people from affected communities. Along with music and readings, the hour-long memorial features the "naming of names", a poignant moment where the names of the deceased are called aloud from the stage, and from the audience.
