This summer, during the International AIDS Conference, youth activists from across the country called on the President to establish the first ever National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day.

The road to an AIDS-free generation begins by prioritizing youth. Today’s young people are the first generation that has never known a world without HIV and AIDS. In the United States, almost 40% of new HIV infections are young people ages 13 to 29. Despite this harsh reality, young people and their allies are determined to end this pandemic once and for all.

Join us in calling on President Obama to recognize the National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day!

National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day is a nationwide call to action for our communities, schools and government to invest in young people’s health, education, and leadership in the fight against HIV & AIDS.

To achieve this day, we need you.  Sign the petition – as either an individual or an organization – that calls on President Obama, Congress, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the HIV & AIDS community to annually recognize April 10 as National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day.

Take action now for a National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day!

With your support, we can achieve the dream of an AIDS-free generation.

For young people between the ages of 13 and 24 who are passionate about HIV & AIDS work, apply today to become a National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day Ambassador.  Help us make sure the day truly represents young people like you! Applications are due November 30. For more information, click here.

    Would someone please post, on what to exspect or how to handle it when my friend told me he was bisexual. I do not think that i have much problem with it, but my parents might, only because he is another guy and older than my parents. I have known him for over a year. And he just told me, because of something i said last week that upset him. When i made the comment i did not know he was bi. He told me that he was only letting me know now because what i said upset him very much. Now i am having problems with my feelings about things and do not know what to feel or do. He did set me straight on one thing i did not know, ” gay straight or bi is not a choice, it is the way we are born” i was allways told it was a choice. But i am having a hard time reading anything to help understand, and what to do now that i know this about him.
