Hugill & Ip is extremely proud to participate in this year’s “Red Festival” by helping AIDS Concern.
As you might know, AIDS Concern provides public health education and awareness programs to create a more supportive society by eliminating stigma and misunderstandings about HIV/AIDS. Diversity and inclusion are very important values for Hugill & Ip’s employees and Hugill & Ip is actively involved in raising funds to support such incredible worthwhile causes.
1st December 2018 will mark the 30th anniversary of the founding of World AIDS Day. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV. AIDS Concern is hosting the “Red Festival” to raise funds and build awareness among the community about the threat of HIV by supporting World AIDS Day.
AIDS Concern believes that the unfriendly environment to LGBTI people prevent them from getting equal opportunity in health. AIDS Concern aims at eliminating the stigma towards the minority groups and supports anti-discrimination of sexual minorities.
“TRACEY” shines a light on sexual diversity and challenges us to accept people who are different to us but part of our community. Understanding is the first step to eliminate the stigma and myths towards LGBTI people.
“TRACEY” is the first mainstream movie about transgender people produced in Hong Kong. It is being described as “the Hong Kong Danish Girl” by local media, referencing the Oscar-winning Eddie Redmayne film. The story is talking about Tai-hung, in his 50s, who lives happily with his wife. Informed of the death of his high school friend, Tai-hung’s secret past resurfaces.
AIDS Concern was established in 1990 as the first non-government charity organisation committed to the service of AIDS care in Hong Kong. The founders were a group of volunteers from different backgrounds dedicated to improving the living standards for people living with HIV and to stop the spread of HIV.
AIDS Concern is a registered charity in Hong Kong. For Hong Kong residents, donations of HK$100 or above are tax deductible. A donation receipt will be sent after the end of each financial year. Your donation will be used to support AIDS Concern’s education and supportive service to those in need.
