Weekend Happenings: World AIDS Day Edition

This week we’re turning our attention to the 23rd Annual World AIDS Day. The global health day is designed to bring awareness to the fight against HIV and support those living with the virus, as well as commemorate those who lost their fight. Portland, being the supportive city that it is, will be hosting a series of events for the local community. If there was ever a time we wanted to be in more than one place at once, this is it!
