Since 1985, the AIDS Council of NSW has been a global leader in the health and community response to HIV and AIDS, and is recognised as an essential source of health support, information and advocacy for the LGBTQ community across the State. During the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown, that support has extended to connecting members of the LGBTQ community to information about COVID-19 and vaccinations. This work has included holding online forums on the pandemic for regional LGBTQ communities, for trans and gender diverse communities, for people living with HIV and for Older LGBTQ people. ACON has also produced vital information to help people through the pandemic including around mental health, alcohol and other drug support, domestic and family violence in the LGBTQ community, PrEP and sex during COVID-19. On 16 October, ACON also joined forces with Western Sydney Local Health District to host a fabulous Super Saturday vaccination drive at Qudos Bank Arena, with DJs, rainbow lights and drag royalty Hannah Conda entertaining people in the observation area, all to increase vaccination rates in the LGBTQ community and ensure everyone is ready for a safe and happy Mardi Gras in 2022.
