[Pink Scene] LoveYourself's Platinum HIV Testing Returns This April

This April, LoveYourself is once again offering its Platinum HIV testing service for those of you who are still in the closet about getting tested. Taking place at a discreet location near Makati's central business district, the Platinum Testing Service ensures that the fact that you're getting tested HIV remains completely confidential. All they ask is a minimum standard donation of P500.

The testing event will take place on April 19 and 26 between the hours of 06:00pm and 09:00pm. The exact location will be revealed later on through your personal coordinator assigned to assist you with your testing. All you need to do is to pre-register for the event in order to set your appointment.

On a personal note, I don't entirely agree with the concept of the Platinum testing idea since it sort of indirectly supports the notion that we should be ashamed of getting tested for HIV and other STDs. Then again, I know that HIV/AIDS awareness still has a long way to go in this country and a lot of education work needs to be done in order to wash away the stigma of the mere act of getting tested.

And a the very least, the P500 donation is sure to go to a good cause in continuing to fund the various advocacy efforts of LoveYourself, which has recently expanded its movement to include Cebu as well.

So be smart and get tested. It's the best decision you'll even make. And if Platinum isn't for you, there are a lot of FREE testing options still available.
