The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 08, 2013

HIV has affected the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community since it began to effect many Americans in the 1970's. 

In very recent months, many studies have begun to pave the way towards a potential cure. A newborn Mississippi baby was treated with antiretrovirals with a non-detectable viral and then stopped medications. This baby continues to have a nondetectable viral load.  In France, another study highlighted the treatment immediately after infection (within ten weeks) with HIV, with similar stories. These individuals stopped medications and continued to have an undetectable viral load. Other individuals, who were tremendously ill due to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) received bone marrow transplants and many months later remained with undetectable viral loads. 

Exciting news and outcomes are occurring everywhere, but for many people in New Mexico, HIV and/or AIDS effects them daily medically, socially and economically. 

in 2011, Albuquerque Pride hosted their first New Mexico HIV/AIDS Walk and has since raised over $15,000 to benefit non-profit organizations specifically working with individuals living in New Mexico at risk for or living with HIV and/or AIDS. We ask you to take part in the 2013 New Mexico HIV/AIDS Walk to help benefit local non-profits hard at work with assisting those at need.
