Virtual Newsletter: November 2020

Welcome to Friends For Life's November Newsletter! 😁

First, watch as the lovely Memphis-based drag queen Brenda Newport lip syncs to Thank You for Being a Friend!

Listen as our VP of Prevention Services, Eric Leue, discusses The Corner's one-year anniversary. Woohoo! 🎉

The Corner has served more than 1,000 new clients since opening its doors, diagnosed and treated more than 250 STI cases, and given access to PrEP and PEP to more than 500 people!

We are extremely grateful for the support from our community. So, thank you all!

We are still not accepting walk-ins but we are accepting Telehealth appointments.

The Corner is always here for you! So, stay safe and keep wearing your masks until we can see each other safely in-person.

Then, listen to The Haven's manager, Krista Wright-Thayer, as she leads a conversation with her Haven crew. In the discussion, they express what they are most excited about in the new location.

Our CEO Diane Duke closes the newsletter out.

December 1 is World AIDS Day. WAD started in 1988 to commemorate those who have lost their lives due to HIV/AIDS. Today, people who are affected by or living with HIV/AIDS are living long, happy, and healthy lives. However, Memphis still has much progress to be made.

Memphis currently ranks third in the nation for HIV transmissions and first for new AIDS diagnoses. Working together with our coalition partners, we are on a mission to change those numbers for the better.

Tuesday, December 1 is also Giving Tuesday. So, if you feel motivated to do so, please consider making a donation to FFL.

To make a donation, please click here.

Finally, all of us here at FFL want to wish our community members a very happy Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for all of the support we have received, especially during such an unprecedented year. So THANK YOU!

Let us know what you're excited about! We want to hear from you. ❤️


Your Friends
