Hip Hop For HIV 2013

This past Thursday, kicked off the first day of testing for the 7th annual Hip Hop for HIV Awareness 2013. For those who may be new to the city, every year Houston hosts HIV testing ranging from HIV/Aids to other STDs, including: Syphillis and Chlamydia.

For the next few weeks, people will be able to get tested at various locations around the city. The testing locations also offer educational sessions on alarming statics, as well as myths about HIV/AIDS and other STDs. People will be able to get the facts and learn more about this epidemic that has taken a toll on the African American communities all over the world.

Not only will you be able to get FREE testing, after you have went through the whole HIV testing process, you will be given a FREE ticket to the hottest summer concert in Houston, the Hip Hop for HIV Concert. This years acts include: B.O.B, Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Trinidad James and MORE. The concert will be held at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion on Friday July 26, 2013 at 6:30pm.
