Celebrating Health, Life, and Dignity

By Karla Ortiz

In the framework of World Day in Response to HIV and International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Colectivo 41 has joined the ONUSIDA campaign, My Health, My Rights, which focuses on the right to health and explores the challenges faced by people around the world in exercising their rights.

Colectivo 41 seeks to establish actions that avoid perpetuating the stigmatization and discrimination against people who are victims of violence, ranging from hurtful jokes to physical violence.

This organization created by youths now takes the initiative and seeks to implement effective sexual health programs for the LGBTI population through providing tools and knowledge to reduce vulnerability to HIV/AIDS, strengthening links and connecting with the LGBTI community, generating a proactive dialogue with people representing the different areas of government, and building local public policies that attend to the needs and help resolve conflicts due to the negative impact of discrimination that still exists. They have created a series of events to bring necessary information regarding health, human rights, and the LGBTI population to counter this serious problem and to remember all who have fought to protect the health, life, and dignity of others.

On Wednesday, December 13, in the Casa de la Cultura on Mesones 17, there will be a forum for political dialogue at 6 pm: Mi Salud, Mi Derecho, led by Miguel Corral, Scientific and Environmental Journalist of El Mundo newspaper, and Cecilia Garibi, Expert in Gender Studies and activist of Colectivo 41. Afterwards, attendees are invited to participate in a dinner, Let’s Celebrate Our Community, at the offices of Colectivo 41 on Salida Real a Querétaro 103B. The dynamic is to bring food, drinks, and a good attitude to share and enjoy in an atmosphere of brotherhood.

Events will continue on Thursday, December 14, at 10am at the Caises Health Center located in Arco Iris N/A street in La Lejona, with the workshop: HIV, Human Rights and LGBTI Population, taught by Miguel Corral and aimed at activists and health personnel.

To close the cycle, all are invited to the Label Party on Thursday at the La Gloria Bar, starting at 9 pm. There is a suggested donation of 50 pesos and guests are asked to wear costumes best representing them. Be whoever you want to be!
