The Hangout: A Sunday Tea Dance for the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation
May 28, 2011 - Vancouver - Twenty years ago, a young doctor in Vancouver named Dr. Peter Jepson-Young
began a landmark series of video diaries that changed the way people across Canada and around the world looked at HIV/AIDS. He put a face
and a story to the disease and helped an entire generation better understand it and those affected by it. He chronicled his journey,
making 111 video diaries, right up until he died in November 1992. It is an amazing story that was turned into an Academy
Award-nominated CBC/HBO documentary called, The Broadcast Tapes of Dr. Peter. Just before he died, he established
the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. Twenty years later, his
legacy lives on in Vancouver's Dr. Peter Centre and today, you can help this amazing organization just
by partying. That's right. I said PARTY.
On June 5th, come spend your Sunday at a Tea Dance for the second annual Hangout party. We'll raise some
awareness, promote an amazing cause, donate some money, and drink fabulous cocktails while doing it. This year, the Hangout will
feature some of Vancouver's hottest DJs, including, Adam Dreaddy, Jeffrey Michael, Landon James, Mumbles, and Quest.
Homorazzi's own Tommy will be hosting as Syren!
If that wasn't enough, there'll be Smirnoff and Strongbow specials, door prizes, a silent auction, art show, hot guys,
and dancing. This year the organizers (shout out to my partners in crime Perry Boldt, Ricardo Coral, and Trevor Loke) are also
honoured to announce that Dr. Peter's mom, Shirley Young, will be there to talk about her experience and share her inspiring story.
This is going to be a great party, but also an amazing opportunity to support a fantastic organization.
