The HIV Prevention Network (HPN) is a collaboration of consumers, clinics, AIDS Service Organization’s, CBO’s and community leaders working to provide education, prevention, and HIV testing events to the city of Birmingham and the Jefferson County District.
In 2015, BirminGLAM was created to bring awareness to the HIV epidemic while raising funds for ongoing education and testing events put on the throughout the year.
Each year, the HIV Prevention Network of Jefferson County (HPN) identifies key events which raise Awareness, Advocacy, and Activism relating to HIV. BirmingGLAM’s ultimate goal is to destigmatize the conversation around sexual health and HIV testing because there is beauty in knowing your status.
BirminGLAM is a black-tie gala created to celebrate the diverse demographics of the Magic City, including the LBGTQ+ community as well as provide HIV education testing. It brings together Birmingham community leaders, designers, stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, and fashionistas while featuring the Birmingham small business community in a glamorous market place. This event will be hosted by CBS 42’s two-time Emmy winning news anchor, Sherri Jackson.
