Several local groups will join Health Services of North Texas and Mayhill Hospital in observing World AIDS Day at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 E. Hickory St. 

Outreach Denton, the city's resource for LGBT people and their supporters, the Denton Feminist & Queer Collective and the Greater Denton Arts Council  will present a program with the healthcare agencies.

The event will raise awareness of those living with HIV/AIDS, and will include free HIV testing, talks by people living with HIV/AIDS and information about safer sex practices.

Musician Elijah Cumpton will perform, and refreshments will be served. Attendees can also view "Native Threads: The AIDS Memorial Quilt," an exhibit of selected panels of the international memorial art project, which is on display through Dec. 9 at the Meadows Gallery at the arts center.
