City Marks World AIDS Day with Ceremony at the Apollo Theater

This year's World AIDS Day commemoration will be more important than ever in New York: with Governor Cuomo's launch of the End AIDS Task Force. A coalition of 30+ HIV/AIDS groups gathered at the famous Apollo Theater to renew the fight against HIV/AIDS in NY State.

A number of individuals showed up today at the Apollo and took part in the event.
