Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK’s largest HIV and sexual health charity, has a number of activities planned around this year’s event. The charity is also able to support journalists covering HIV stories for World AIDS Day, either by supplying key facts and statistics, lining up expert spokespeople or putting them in touch with case studies who are living with the condition. Key dates include:
• Terrence Higgins Trust’s 30th Anniversary (26th November)
On 26th November 1982, London magazine Capital Gay ran a front-page article under the headline ‘US Disease Hits London’. It announced that four men, one of them Terry Higgins, had died of a mysterious new illness, which we now know as AIDS. Terrence Higgins Trust’s 30th anniversary campaign ‘Thanks Terry’ marks three decades of the charity’s work preventing the spread of HIV, and supporting those already living with the virus.

Stonewall today welcomed a decision by the Court of Appeal to uphold a landmark court ruling in favour of a couple refused a hotel room by the owners of a hotel in Cornwall.
Civil Partners Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy had been turned away from the Chymorvah Hotel near Penzance in 2010 by owners Peter and Hazelmary Bull. In January 2011 a judge at Bristol County Court ruled that the Bulls’ behaviour amounted to direct discrimination, and awarded a total of £3,600 damages to Mr Hall and Mr Preddy.
Ben Summerskill, Stonewall Chief Executive, said: ‘We’re delighted that the Court upheld the judgment. The Court’s decision vindicates Stonewall’s hard lobbying to make it illegal to deny goods or services to someone just because they happen to be gay. That obviously includes hotel rooms for many gay holidaymakers, which can only be a good thing in a Jubilee year. I hope Mr and Mrs Bull will now feel content to go home to do God’s good work as Easter approaches, instead of relentlessly pursuing a happy couple through the courts.’
Thursday 9th February is a historic day for young lesbian, gay, bi, trans, and questioning (LGBTQ) people living in Cornwall, as it marks the opening of the county’s first ever centre dedicated to supporting and advocating for LGBTQ youth.
Behind this venture is an organisation known as LGBTQ Youth Cornwall which, for the last three years, has been managing a support and social group called YAY! (a name chosen by members of the group meaning: Young and Yourself!). In the past, the group have met in coffee shops and other youth centres, but are now delighted to have found their own home at last thanks to funding from BBC Children in Need!
This dedicated centre will enable LGBTQ Youth Cornwall to increase and vary the services that they provide for this sector of our community, as well as encouraging the young people to develop that vital sense of ownership and belonging.
Their goal is to provide you with a superior support environment through customer service, innovative network design, a unique suite of services, and the latest technological advances in server hardware.
