Project CONDOM

June 24, 2010

Project CONDOM flyer

The Bloomington Latin American Solidarity Collective is holding a fundraiser for the group FEDI (Ecuadorian Foundation for Inclusive Diversity, my translation), which is a collective dedicated to GLBT rights and awareness.  They focus mainly on health initiatives, such as HIV/AIDS prevention, but they have also successfully demanded government action to prevent discrimination against the GLBT (GLBTI in Ecuador) community.  Now, there has been a great increase in the protection of the gay community, but there is still much work to be done.

The event is a variety show, where singer/songwriters, bands and others will perform.  It will be held at Uncle Elizabeth’s Nightclub on Sunday, June 27 at 8 p.m.  There will be a $5 suggested donation at the door.  Our specific aim for this event is to help raise funds for the group to gain non-profit status (which costs U.S. $4,000 in Ecuador), so they can then apply for international grants and receive aid from elsewhere.  A portion of the proceeds is also going to distribute condoms and to help with the current prevention campaign the group is doing.
