May 7, 2013 - VANCOUVER - In recognition of its 30th anniversary, AIDS Vancouver today announced The 30 30 Campaign, a new video campaign that chronicles the stories of HIV/AIDS in Vancouver over the past 30 years. The videos feature 38 community leaders sharing their experiences and memories; the first video premieres on July 1st at 3030.AIDSVancouver.org, and a new video will be released each day for 30 days.

"Vancouver has long been at the forefront of the fight against HIV/AIDS," said Dr. Brian Chittock, Executive Director of AIDS Vancouver. "In fact, AIDS Vancouver was the first AIDS service organization in Canada. As we reflect back on the past 30 years, it is important to celebrate the stories of those who have contributed, remember those we have lost, and inspire the next generation to continue the work of prevention, action, and support."

Video participants include Dr. Julio Montaner of the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, former City of Vancouver Chief Public Health Officer Dr. John Blatherwick, AIDS Vancouver founding member and former City Councillor Gordon Price, and May McQueen, who, at 87 years old, has been volunteering at AIDS Vancouver for more than 20 years.

AIDS Vancouver is partnering with the Commodore Ballroom to host a free evening of remembrance and celebration on July 30th, featuring live music and art, local celebrities, and the premiere of the final video of the 30 30 Campaign series. Videos and event registration are available at 3030.AIDSVancouver.org.
