Sweat with Pride

Sweat for 21 minutes a day this August to get fit and raise money to support our Rainbow communities.

Everyday life is still too damn hard for our Rainbow communities. Stigma and discrimination lead to higher rates of mental health issues and even suicide. And then there are the physical illnesses – STIs like syphilis and HIV disproportionately affect our community.

  • 1 in 5 of our Rainbow youth have attempted suicide;
  • Our gay and bi guys account for almost 80 percent of new HIV transmissions; and
  • More than half of our Rainbow whānau have experienced mental illness.

So the New Zealand AIDS Foundation is asking everyday Kiwis like you to take a stand for our Rainbow community. They don’t just need thoughts and prayers. They need sweat.

By Sweating with Pride you’re raising money to fund life-changing projects that will improve the mental and physical health of Aotearoa’s Rainbow communities.
