Aid for AIDS of Nevada has led the AIDS Walk for over twenty years. Individual Walkers and Walk Team numbers have grown significantly, sponsorships by local businesses and organizations continue to increase, and public awareness rises with every walk.
Last year, more than 9,000 people walked
raising over $450,000. Over 250 corporate and community teams raised 70%
of the total funds collected. Teams represent some of the leading
corporations and organizations in Southern Nevada including Walgreens, Nordstroms, Citi Group, M.A.C Cosmetics, UNLV, Wells Fargo, Penn & Teller and many more.
Today there is newfound hope in the fight against AIDS – but still no
cure. Some people with HIV/AIDS are living longer thanks to new
therapies. Tragically, the new treatments do not work for everyone, and
HIV continues to spread at an alarming rate.
We will walk until that point in time, when AFAN is no longer effective, our services no longer needed and our purpose no longer essential to the solution.

has been living with the disease for 22 years. As the first television
personality since Pedro Zamora to be vocal about his HIV status, Jack
Mackenroth has quickly become the most visible, out HIV+ advocate and
educator in the country… if not the world. With the release of his 2012
calendar, he hopes to raise both money and awareness for AIDS research,
and to show through his photographs that a person living with HIV can be
in top physical form, healthy and sexy.
The Holy Order of
Sin Sity Sisters of
invite you ….
to get out your best and most bodacious red dress for their annual benefit to fight HIV/AIDS.
The event, sponsored by Blown Out Productions, SNAPI, QVegas, CRUSH, Flava, Las Vegas Nightbeat, Big Daddy Productions and Mundo will be held at The World Market Center (495 S. Grand Central Parkway), on the 16th floor, on February 26, 2011. The VIP Party ($50), which includes admission to the Main Event, will start at 8p and the Main Event ($30) will start at 9p.
The night will feature live entertainment, silent and live auctions, a costume contest, dancing, a cash bar and lots of debauchery and Sister mayhem!
This is a non-smoking and 21+ event.
ALL attendees of the “The Cherry Poppin’ Red Dress” are required to wear a red dress to reflect the solidarity of the community in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
What qualifies as a red dress?
A dress can be made from cloth, mesh, ribbon, sheer, leather or latex, etc. Sarongs, pareos, togas, kilts, skirts with tops, wrap dress, are also allowed. It is not mandatory that your chest be covered, only the nipples of females.
It’s NOT drag (but it can be)
You are NOT required to express yourselves with make-up, heels or other feminine accessories, unless that is what you desire. This is similar in mood to a school uniform… with a twist. It allows for personal expression, but creates a unity and breaks down social barriers that unconsciously exist between people.
There will be red dress rentals available for a small suggested donation.
The Red Dress is the major fundraiser for The Sisters AIDS Drug Assistance Program. This program is designed to assist individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada with both short-term and long-term acquisition of prescribed medications necessary for their continued physical health and mental well-being. Our program will allow these individuals to remain adherent to ALL their prescribed medications needs and will alleviate much of the emotional stress of monthly financial dilemmas. The Sisters have raised and distributed over $230,000 to acquire HIV medications for our clients in the past four years.
The Sisters exist as an order of 21st century nuns dedicated to the promulgation of universal joy and the expiation of stigmatic guilt. Our ministry is one of public manifestation and habitual perpetration. The Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were formed in Las Vegas in 2005. Mother Loosy Lust Bea Lady and some close friends, all with activist and volunteering backgrounds, went out into Las Vegas, and began the mission of love, no shame, no guilt and ultimately the Sisters AIDS Drug Assistance Program.
The Sisters Red Dress Event has become one of the landmark and most highly anticipated events in the city. The Sisters attempt to bless, listen, reach out, and celebrate the fact that by being who we are, as nature made us, we gain grace and redemption. We are proud to have become part of the fabric of fun and glitz that Las Vegas offers, as well as bringing a more thought provoking message of love.
For more informationa about the Sisters, please contact Sister Loosy at (702) 591-6969, Sister Sioux at (702) 205-7794 or Sister Hope at (702) 324-1271.

The 44th annual
Beaux Arts Ball
is coming back to Studio 54 this year on Halloween night! The party starts at 10pm and tickets are just $25 in advance and $35 at the door. Don’t forget your costume because cash prizes will be given away for Sexiest, Best Drag and Most Original Costumes!
The biggest Halloween costume party of the year, the Beaux Arts Ball is a Las Vegas tradition dating back more than 40 years. Born as a private party for Strip headliners to lose themselves in costumed fantasy, the Beaux Arts Ball is open to everyone who dares to enjoy. The night features live performances by cast members of Las Vegas production shows, dancing, costume contests and the most outrageous costumes seen anywhere in Las Vegas.
Organized by Golden Rainbow, it is a non-profit organization founded in 1987. We provide housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Southern Nevada area.
Golden Rainbow is a grass roots organization, founded by members of the entertainment industry who saw the need to provide housing for people with HIV/AIDS when one of their own was forced to live and die in a garage.
Entertainers, doing what they do best, put together their first show to raise money for this worthwhile cause. That first show was called “Golden Rainbow” and premiered July 11, 1987, in the Ziegfeld Theatre at Bally’s. Since then the show’s name has been changed to “Ribbon of Life ” and is one of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraisers in Nevada.
The Black and White Party returns to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino August 21 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. It’s only $35 and the event benefits Aid for AIDS of Nevada. Come show your support and have an amazing time and enjoy all you can eat and drink and dance the night away.
Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) provides support and advocacy for adults and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in southern Nevada. AFAN works to reduce HIV infection through prevention education to eliminate fear, prejudice and the stigma associated with the disease.
