We proudly present National AIDS Trust’s new fundraising initiative, Drag Raise. The lights are up, the stage is set...and everyone’s invited.

Drag as an art form has always been a powerful tool for self-expression and activism. The drag community has historically played an important role in HIV activism, challenging HIV-related stigma, as well as being a source of strength, relief, and support for communities living with, and affected by, HIV throughout the epidemic.

This summer we’re asking you to celebrate drag culture in style, and join a movement to raise funds for our work, so that together we can end new HIV transmissions by 2030 and stamp out HIV stigma...with heels on.
