Be Our Facebook Friend!

Hi everyone!

We've received word that some of you find it "lehcheh" (inconvenient) to join our Facebook Group/Fan Page because it's something that you won't check often, and so, you have requested that we create a Facebook ID and you can be our friend.

So, we've done that! Search Pelangi Pride Centre and you'll see us.

Looking forward to be "friends"!

Take care!

To Live is Better Than to Die

While the AIDS epidemic began to gradually subside in the West in the 1990s, it tragically exploded in many other parts of the world. At the dawn of the 21st century, the village of Wenlou in Henan province, Central China was especially hard hit, with 60 percent of its people testing positive for the HIV virus, largely due to faulty preventative measures taken during the government-directed blood drives.

Chinese documentary filmmaker, Chen Weijun spent a year living with a family in Wenlou who were struggling with the onslaught of the disease -- only one member of the household has been spared from HIV. To Live is Better Than to Die is a document not only of their battle with AIDS but also their resolve to make the most of their lives.
