This past Saturday Vida/SIDA’s Mpowerment program Generation L along with The C.R.U., Calor A.C.E, and Project PrEPare held “Noche De Fiestas” at Latin Rhythms . A night full of music, food, raffles, and a drag show by many Chicago drag performers. The night was intended to bring HIV prevention and awareness to LGBTQ youth of Chicago.
Vida/SIDA’s very own Milani Ninja was one of the hosts along with Zumiyah Rayne. Pedro Mercado was the photographer of the night. This was the first time all the Latino Mpowerment programs collaborated together. It brought youth of all ages and different communities together in a fun night. HIV testing & counseling was provided by Vida/SIDA as well as A.C.E. & The C.R.U. This night showed the strong unity of the Latino LGBTQ community of Chicago as they closed the night with dancing and laughing together.
