JOIN THE IMPACT "LIGHT UP THE NIGHT FOR EQUALITY" CANDLELIGHT VIGIL & FOOD DRIVE
On Saturday, December 20, Seattle will join a nationwide candlelight vigil and food drive to promote marriage equality. Seattle will hold two vigils simultaneously at two different locations. The point is not to have thousands of people in one location; it's to reach thousands of people in one night.

The downtown Seattle vigil will begin at 4 p.m. at Victor Steinbrueck Park, at the north end of the Pike Place Market. "At 5 p.m. we will mobilize, sending groups to every corner of the downtown shopping area (between Pike St. & Olive St. and 4th Ave. & 7th Ave.)"

The second vigil will be held at the University Village shopping mall, 25th Ave. NE and NE 45th St. Meet at 4:45 p.m. by Anthropologie, which is located in the northeast part of the mall. The event will be from 5-7:30 p.m.

"Candlelight vigils will be held at commercial centers in cities across the country in remembrance of the rights that once were for 18,000 marriages in California and in honor of the rights that one day will be again for EVERYONE. This will be a peaceful demonstration in the spirit of the holidays. We'll dress alike: make or buy a "Second Class Citizen" t-shirt. We will stay silent unless asked a question; we will not yell, instigate or bear signs. Instead, we will let our shirts do the talking and our candles pay our respects. Bring candles. Singing and/or silence encouraged - chanting is not. Keep it peaceful and in the holiday spirit." Bring a non-perishable food item to the vigil.

For more information, visit the Seattle information site on the "Light Up the Night for Equality" page at www.jointheimpact.com.

SOLDIERS PROJECT NW OFFERS FREE COUNSELING FOR VETS/ACTIVE MILITARY & THEIR LOVES ONES

Soldiers Project NW has put together a list of licensed private practice therapists from Olympia to Bellingham who are willing to see one client (or couple, or family) at no charge, for as long as they need to be seen to deal with any of the stressors that have come from being involved in combat or loving someone who has.

IN THE LIFE TV PRESENTS "AIDS IS STILL A BIG DEAL"
On Sunday, December 21, at midnight, KCTS-TV, Channel 9, broadcasts In The Life's monthly news magazine, which, this month, looks at the current state of HIV/AIDS and the continuing effort to educate and communicate the peril it still presents. (You can also view this episode online at your convenience.)

Alarmed at the rise of high-risk behavior among HIV+ young Gay men, a collaboration of New York Public Health professionals and New York University has produced an innovative web-based campaign telling the story of a young Gay man in New York City who meets sex partners on the internet. In this new approach to HIV/AIDS awareness, In the Life asks whether a web-based serial can affect the behavior of the men who watch it.

Denied admission to the Foreign Service in 2003, Lorenzo Taylor, with the aid of Lambda Legal, sued Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for discrimination in the workplace. As part of their pioneering documentation of the many faces of HIV/AIDS, In the Life revisits and updates the case that spurred the lifting of the ban in February 2008, less than two weeks before it went to trial.

In recognition of World AIDS Day, December 1, Dr. Mathilde Krim, Founding Chairman of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) and Phil Wilson, founder and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute, in their first on-camera discussion, relate their tireless efforts in the fight against AIDS and reflect on the current state of the pandemic. www.inthelifetv.org
