INTERNATIONAL Women’s Day this year falls during Australia’s largest regional LGBTI pride festival, where Living Positive Victoria will draw special attention to women living with HIV.

Sunday (March 8) is Carnival day for Daylesford’s ChillOut festival, which takes place directly after the Pride Parade at 10am.

It’s ChillOut’s 16th year, and the Carnival will feature animal rides, live entertainment, food, and wine.

As part of the festivities, Living Positive Victoria will have the LOVE Positive Women artwork on display, featuring works created by a workshop of women for Valentine’s Day this year.

“This is a fabulous opportunity to engage an energised community around International Women’s Day,” Living Positive Victoria board director and Positive Fabulous+ director Kim Davis said.

“We’re looking forward to getting heaps of support and making the whole day focused on our community of Positively Fabulous women.”

There will also be an interactive photo-spot where members of the community can pledge their support to Living Positive Victoria’s ENUF campaign.

ENUF is dedicated to resisting HIV stigma and promoting resilience through encouraging people living with HIV to share their personal stories.

Community members are invited to join the ENUF HIV stigma float at the ChillOut Parade from 10am on Sunday on Daylesford’s Main St, and to visit the Living Victoria booth at Carnival.
