The Washington, D.C., HIV nonprofit organization Health Options and Positive Energy Foundation (HOPE) DC will celebrate its 25th anniversary as a resource and support group for HIV-positive gay and bisexual men on September 21. In 1996, a group of HIV-positive men who met at Georgetown Hospital while participating in clinical trials formed a volunteer-run organization that now has more than 1,000 members. The organization hosts monthly social events where HIV-positive or positive-friendly gay and bisexual men can gather in support of each other. HOPE’s 25th Anniversary Social will be held in a private home in Arlington, Va.
