A touring photography exhibition created to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of HIV/AIDS has arrived on campus in time for World AIDS Day, Sunday 1 December. Stand Tall, Get Snapped by London-based photographer Edo Zollo features portraits of 30 people from across the UK who are living with HIV, some for just a few months, others for more than 25 years.

Check out the exhibition, organised by SRC Sexual Orientation Equality Officer, Liam King, in the atrium of the Wolfson Medical Building between 8.30am and 5pm until 3 December (excluding the weekend). Details of other on-campus activities marking World AIDS Day can be found on the Equality & Diversity Unit’s events page.

Why not also check out recent University of Glasgow research on medical, psychological, socio-cultural and educational matters associated with HIV/AIDS using Enlighten or the library’s thesis search?

Away from campus, University of Glasgow lecturer, Eamonn Butler, together with local running club Glasgow FrontRunners, is organsing Scotland’s first fundraising 5km Red Run for World AIDS Day. Everyone is welcome on the Red Run which gets underway at 11am.
