Hello all. So I am in charge of throwing the World AIDS Day party on campus for the GLBT group. I want it to be a departure from the standard "vigil" kind of party. I want to bring some life into this, not mope all night and make everyone bored with touchy-feely women reading bad poetry. I don't feel like we need to preach to people, we all just need to take a night to remember those who are gone and those who we are fighting for.
This is what I have so far: Safer sex/ safer play theme (maybe not)
Stuff about safe peircing and tatoos (we have a problem in the high schools). With a safe peircing demo by a local body artist. Raffle for gift certificates to body art parlour (for those over 18).
Everything red! Encourage people to dress in red.
A drag show maybe.
Live DJ, dancing thingo
So I obviously need some help. Please post any and all ideas you might have. The party is set for December 1, 2006. I'll post pics after it for all of you. Thanks for your help.
