Positive East presents Rays of Resistance – an unforgettable evening of celebration set against the powerful backdrop of the arts’ role in HIV/AIDS activism.

Get ready for a dazzling display of music, dance, and spoken word performances narrated by singer and producer ROY INC. Witness how seminal artworks from the past challenged stigma and fostered a sense of community, while powerful voices of today ignite hope and inspire action.

Rays of Resistance is proudly sponsored by MAC VIVA Glam, with additional support from Shoreditch Town Hall.
