A portion of the proceeds will benefit Atlanta Georgia's Positive Impact Health Centers (PIHC). PIHC provides client-centered HIV care and works tirelessly to stop HIV transmission in Atlanta. The organization serves over 10,000 individuals every year through 4 locations in Metro Atlanta - Chamblee, Decatur, Duluth and Marietta. The agency provides HIV comprehensive specialty care through clinical care, gender affirming care, mental health counseling, addiction treatment, support programs in medical case management, patient navigators, transportation and housing, and through prevention, testing, PrEP and PEP.

Funding and donations from our event will be directed towards mental health counseling and the gender inclusion program at PIHC. This agency understands gender is not restricted to binary roles of male and female. They know aligning identity with your gender is important to your health. Every program, including mental health counseling, is gender inclusive. The agency also provides gender-affirming hormone therapy is a medical intervention for people of trans experience or gender non-conforming individuals. This year, PIHC opened a Trans Life Care Drop-In Center for individuals of trans experience to get to know the staff and services at PIHC.
