24 Kitchen Street to exhibit UK AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT with Sahir House for World AIDS Day.

24/11/2021

This year marks 40 years since the first reports of what is now known as HIV and AIDS and Liverpool will mark the day with a special event at 24 Kitchen Street.


From World AIDS Day 1St December – 5th December 2021, 24 Kitchen Street, Liverpool, will exhibit handmade panels from the UK AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT.

This will be the first time in UK History the UK AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT has been exhibited inside a nightclub. Traditionally nightclubs were, and still are, a space where most Queer people feel safe enough to exist authentically. 

On the 1st December, hosted by David Hoyle we invite you to ‘The Red Ball’ a fundraiser for Sahir House and celebration of the lives lost to AIDS. Confirmed performers are Kalypso Bang, Severus Heyn and more TBA. Confirmed DJs are Sonic Yootha, BonzaiBonner of Shoot Your Shot – Glasgow, headliner TBA. All profits go to Sahir House.

Serena Cavanagh, Health Promotion Lead, Sahir House, said:

‘We are very excited to be working with 24 Kitchen Street to raise much needed awareness of HIV and bring together a wide selection of the public.  Our HIV positive guest speakers bring HIV to life and help dispel the myths that still surround the virus.’

Josiah Worth, Partnership Development Coordinator at 24 Kitchen Street, said:

‘This project was born from rage and love of our Queer communities unwavering resilience. Much of our history has been destroyed due the AIDS crisis, so we need to learn as much as possible from what little we have been lovingly left.’

Jonas Roberts, Production & Development Manager at 24 Kitchen Street, said:

‘Club culture has become too disjointed from it’s Queer roots. It’s time for us to acknowledge and pay homage to Queer history’
