World of Red Ball

The World of Red Ball is The Center's signature World AIDS Day event that uses voguing to honor the perseverance and strength of LGBTQ+ people living with HIV & AIDS. It creates a safe space to reflect and celebrate those we have lost to HIV & AIDS as well as those continually fighting.

Paint The Town Red

The World of Red Ball has become an annual event for The Center! This being the 3rd year our plan is to continue to host a carefully curated event around the continued education, engagement, and support of one of the largest communities (ballroom), affected by HIV/AIDS.
