AIDS ribbon planned for Twin Peaks

A giant red ribbon will be installed on Twin Peaks this weekend to mark the 30th anniversary of the first reported cases of AIDS. This will be the first time such a ribbon has been placed at Twin Peaks.

San Francisco AIDS Foundation CEO Neil Giuliano, Supervisor Scott Weiner, volunteers, and others will gather Sunday, May 22 at Twin Peaks Viewpoint. Installation begins at 8 a.m. The dedication ceremony will be at 11 a.m.

The ceremony “will be a chance to reflect on the last 30 years of the epidemic, and look forward to a future when HIV/AIDS is a thing of the past,” the foundation said in a statement today (Thursday, May 19).

The ribbon will be visible across the Bay Area and will remain at the site May 22 to June 19.

The vista is also home to a huge pink triangle every June for the city’s LGBT Pride celebration. The triangle typically goes up on Pride weekend. This year’s festivities are June 25 and 26.

For more information about how to get involved with the red ribbon, contact Megan Canon at San Francisco AIDS Foundation: mcanon@sfaf.org or (415) 487-3085.
