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!

HIV and Aging

Thanks to the advent of antiretroviral therapy (ART), people with HIV/AIDS are living longer and healthier lives. But there can be many side effects to HIV drugs, including but not limited to: weight gain or loss, diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, rashes, sleep disorders and nerve pain and numbness. As well, once an HIV positive individual begins treatment, she/he must remain on it for the rest of their life in order to prevent drug resistance from developing. Here is a great article from the Glob and Mail that looks at HIV and aging:
