BCAP Raises Awareness with World AIDS Day, Denver Gay Men's Chorus Concert and First Friday Events

Engage, educate, remember!

Started on 1st December 1988, World AIDS Day is about increasing awareness, fighting prejudice, improving education and raising money. The World AIDS Day theme for 2009 is 'Universal Access and Human Rights'. World AIDS Day is important in reminding people that HIV has not gone away, and that there are many things still to be done.

BCAP (Boulder County AIDS Project) will have an all-day presence on Pearl Street Mall (from 8am - 5pm) in front of the Courthouse, to let passers by know about World AIDS Day and the reality that AIDS is not over. BCAP also wants the Boulder community to remember!

From 11am - 6pm, Art & Soul (1615 Pearl Street in Boulder) will be hosting "Day without Art" and the BCAP AIDS Memorial in honor of those we have lost.

Free HIV Testing will be offered at Boulder County AIDS Project from 11am to 2pm Know your status. Talk with your partner. Choose wisely.

At 12noon, local places of faith will ring their bells for ten minutes in honor of World AIDS Day.


This year BCAP welcomes the Denver Gay Men's Chorus as we reflect and remember for our annual World AIDS Day Concert! Long-time supporters the First United Methodist Church are hosting the concert at 7pm. First United Methodist Church is located at 1421 Spruce St. in Boulder.

Several local restaurants will donate a portion of their dinner sales this evening so that people going to the concert can drop in for a bite to eat before the concert and also support BCAP. The Cup, The Mountain Sun, Aji, and Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant will all donate 10% of their sales. The Cup is a coffee house and will be donating 10% of their sales for the whole day. All of these restaurants are within a couple of blocks of the First United Methodist Church.

Tickets for the concert are $15.00. Tickets can be purchased by calling 303.444.6121 or by clicking here


On Friday, the 4th of December, the Pearl Street East End Merhcants are raising money for BCAP by donating a percentage of their sales for the day to us. This is an incredible opportunity to get some holiday shopping done, purchase a birthday gift, or buy something for yourself AND support BCAP at the same time. The following shops are participating in this incredible event:


Not the white robes and lemon water types. A little suspicious of the others. We set out to create the ‘tweener spa. ‘Tween the cheapy little nail shop on every corner and the chi-chi over-the-top spa with over-the-top prices to match. White robes stay at the toga party. We’re the everywoman/everyman spa. The lounge. The den. The urban oasis. The secret hideout. The party place. A place for us. A place for you. Your second home.
