What do Canning Vegetables have to do with HIV Education and LGBTQIA History?. We at the Softball Collective invite you to take part in learning our history in a hands-on and interactive way.

During the early days of the HIV Crisis In the 80’s, many AIDS and HIV patients were led to fend from themselves from an on unwavering health care system. At the time, HIV Medication was so harsh on their bodies that digesting food was difficult. HIV Positive LGBTQI people used their resourcefulness to uncover that eating preserved vegetables made food easier for them to digest.

Come and learn the basic of canning fruits and vegetables and discuss how LGBTQI history of direct action from the past can inspire us to create social change today. All supplies are covered and you get to take your jar of deliciousness home with you.
