Earlier this month New Yorkers observed several New York City's landmarks turn red after dark. The display was courtesy of "Light Up New York" a project that expanded upon the Empire State Building's tradition, of turning its spire red in honor of important HIV awareness events, including AIDS Walk New York.
"Last year's 'Light Up New York' was a great success, garnering support from all over the city and reminding the region residents that AIDS is not over," said GMHC boardmember Osvaldo Perdomo, who spearheaded the project. "It's gratifying to see so many New York institutions that are willing to take a powerful stand with GMHC in the fight against HIV and AIDS.”
