Vallarta Pride 2017 Joins Social Cause for PrEP

Vallarta Pride
November 13, 2016


We have prepared a renewed Gay Pride Festival with new proposals that we're sure you'll love but most of all, we're supporting a social cause important for the community: prevention of HIV/AIDS by the distribution of the PrEP pill.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at substantial risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill. The pill (brand name Truvada) contains two medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine) that are used in combination with other medicines to treat HIV. More information at PrEP.

Vallarta Pride wishes to thank everyone for your contribution for 2016. Without YOUR support Vallarta Pride 2016 would not have been possible.

We also have some exciting news for 2017. Puerto Vallarta condo owners Richard Michael and Mike Williams have issued a GoFundMe challenge for Vallarta Pride 2017 to begin immediately. They will match all donations up to 120,000 pesos for Pride 2017.
 
We are already organizing and planning for the entertainment for Pride 2017 to take place in Puerto Vallarta May 21-28, 2017. This GoFund Me campaign will be used as the seed money to make our entertainment even bigger. So now is the best time as your donations will be matched by our generous supporters Richard and Mike. Please consider a donation today and share this challenge with your friends!
 
Vallarta Pride thanks you for your support and generosity!
