The event LIGHTS UP! is organised by our civic association – DOM SVETLA SLOVENSKO – Lighthouse Slovakia. We would like to demonstrate the memory of AIDS victims by turning the external light of the Embassy Building red at night, optimally between 9:00 pm and the midnight. The Memorial Day is held on Sunday, the 21st of May 2017.
The first light for AIDS was held in 1983, at the time of no known cause of AIDS, when there were thousands of HIV deaths. The event organizers wanted to honor the memory of those who succumbed to the disease and to support people living with HIV/AIDS. This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the event.
