Red Dress Party San Diego is a whimsical fundraising event where everyone is encouraged to be brave, let loose, and celebrate impact. Like the name suggests, attendees are required to wear a red dress, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. This serves as a powerful sign of compassion and solidarity for those affected by HIV/AIDS and as a way to unite the crowd in one radiant theme.

Our goals

Raise Funds

Critical medical and supportive care services to improve the quality of life for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS all require resources, which are limited and becoming more scarce. So every bit of funding helps.

Build Awareness

Did you know that it's estimated a new person tests positive for HIV every 18 hours in San Diego County? Although there have been huge strides in HIV prevention and treatment efforts, a great need still exists for testing, counseling, and care.

Celebrate Impact

The Red Dress Party is like the name suggests – a party – and an opportunity for the community to band together, celebrate and support a great cause.

Frequently asked questions


Do I have to wear a dress?

Yes! All guests – regardless of age, gender identity or sexual orientation – are required to wear a red dress. REPEAT: A RED DRESS IS REQUIRED (or dress like garment). It serves as a powerful symbol of solidarity and compassion for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.


Who should attend the event?

Anyone who wants to make a difference – regardless of age, gender identity, or sexual orientation – is welcome. However, only those who are 21 years of age or older with proper ID will be permitted since alcohol is served at this event.


I'm a guy, so do I have to be in drag?

No, but you certainly can if your heart desires. Although not a drag party per se, you'll undoubtedly see some drag queens there so live it up! Red Dress Party San Diego invites everyone to be brave, let loose, and celebrate impact.
