Pride Fest 2016


Pride Fest 2016

(Des Moines, Iowa) The Project of Primary Health Care & Project HIM will be at 2016 Capital City Pride Festival this coming weekend, June 11th and 12th. This year’s activities will be a bit more wholesome than the previous years (lube wrestling, anyone?).

On Saturday, test your luck and be the last person standing in our “Pie On The Face” game. Be “selfie” ready because photos will be taken and posted on social media. ;P

On Sunday, try your luck in the Duck Pond by answering an HIV/STI trivia question correctly, for a chance to win awesome prizes!


Prizes include: dog tags, t-shirts, gift cards, and many more!

And as always, we are providing free and confidential HIV test, as well as Syphilis screening. We hope to see you there!
