International Drag Day is an annual event held on July 16. It was created to celebrate the drag culture around the world and to give it more exposure, highlighting its transition from marginalized to mainstream.
The term โ€œdragโ€ refers to the performance of femininity, masculinity, or other forms of gender expression. It is commonly associated with drag queens, people (usually male) who perform femininity. Historically, the practice of men playing female roles is probably as old as theatre itself. Until the late 17th century in England and the early 19th century in the Papal States, acting on stage was considered an immoral occupation for women, so female roles were conventionally portrayed by boys or young men.

Today marks the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

"An uprising took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. As it was raided by the police in the early hours, three nights of unrest followed, with LGBT people, long frustrated by police brutality, finally fighting back. Le****ns and trans women of colour were some of the key people involved in the act of resistance, including Stormรฉ DeLarverie, Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson. This anniversary is a reminder of the power of standing together in defiance of those who seek to divide us" (stonewall.org.uk).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.2 million people in the United States have HIV. For people with undiagnosed HIV, testing is the first step in maintaining a healthy life and reducing the spread of HIV.

June 27 is National HIV Testing Day, an annual occasion to encourage people to get an HIV test. CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People at higher risk should get tested more often.

In celebration of National HIV Testing Day, FREE walk-in, drive-up or at-home testing is offered at 1 Clara Barton at the Department of Medicine. Walk in and drive-up testing will be available from 7:30am until 4:00pm. For more information, to schedule an appointment, or request an at-home test please call 518-262-TEST (8378) or visit our Facebook or Instagram pages
