Condom Couture Fashion Show

Sold Out!!!

The Lethbridge HIV Connection (LHC) in partnership with Lethbridge Pride Fest and Lethbridge College is preparing for their first ever Condom Couture Fashion Show. We are excited to announce that we will be holding the show at CASA on November 28, 2014 at 7:30pm. The event is a lighthearted approach to educating our community about the very serious issues of HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Take into consideration these facts:

 The number of people living with HIV in Canada is increasing
 25% of people living with HIV are unaware that they are HIV positive
 Every 3 hours a person in Canada is infected with HIV

Simply practicing safe sex by using a condom every time will drastically decrease transmission rates of HIV and other STIs. The Lethbridge HIV Connection works to educate people and the Condom Couture Fashion Show; featuring outfits containing condoms as a design material and elements helps make this point.

Come on out and enjoy a fun evening of fashion and entertainment courtesy of Didi D’ Edada of Club Didi!! This is also a great opportunity to see Candie Co’s new Winter line!!

Tickets can be purchase at the Lethbridge HIV Connection at 1206 6th Avenue South Mon-Thurs from 8:30am – 4:30pm.

We are very excited about this great event that we hope will successfully spread awareness about HIV and help educate the public about prevention. Your support is truly appreciated and you are welcome to contact us with any questions about the event at

We want to thank local salons Catwalk and Bad Apple for doing the hair and make-up styling on all of the models and Sculpted Gel Nails by Talia for styling the models nails!

Crack Pipe Vending Machinces

Vancouver’s Portland Hotel Society has done it again, they have led the way with an exciting new harm reduction initiative. This time they are selling crack pipes (glass stems) from vending machines for the nominal price of $0.25 each as a way to make safer inhalation supplies more accessible. For those who support harm reduction, the practice of providing new pipes is the same as providing new needles: it is a proven method of reducing the transmission of HIV and Hepatitis C. The Lethbridge HIV Connection currently does not supply pipes as the Alberta Government has not yet determined if they are legal or will be considered drug paraphernalia, which means staff members could be arrested and charged for distributing them. Nonetheless, we wholeheartedly applaud those at the Portland Hotel Society for once again leading the charge on harm reduction!
