What an incredible time we had during the Karlova Days! 🌈 Vikerkaarekohv, in collaboration with amazing team from Peemoti Keskus, brought something truly special to the event.

We served up our now-famous rainbow waffles (yes they are famous now, I wont explain further), which were a hit among everyone who stopped by. It was heartwarming to see so many faces, both familiar and new, coming together to share in the joy and the vibrant atmosphere we created.

You could definitely say we had a “GAY OF A TIME”! 🏳️‍🌈☕️ Thank you to everyone who showed up and made this experience unforgettable. Your support means the world to us, and we can’t wait to bring even more color and flavor to your lives. Stay tuned for further collaborations together with @peemotikeskus

May 19 Lighting of candles


On May 19, 2024, a ceremony was held in Tammsaare Park to commemorate those who have died from AIDS. Participants gathered to honor the memory of those who lost their lives to this disease. The light from the candles lit in the park symbolized hope and unity in the fight against the AIDS epidemic, as well as support for those living with HIV.

During the ceremony, a red ribbon was laid out, which has become an international symbol of solidarity and awareness about HIV/AIDS. This act emphasized the importance of continuing efforts to spread information on prevention, treatment, and support for people affected by this disease. The ribbon also served as a reminder of the need to combat the prejudices and stigmatization faced by people living with HIV.

The event brought together people of different ages and professions, demonstrating public support and solidarity. Participants expressed hope that such events would help draw attention to the problem of AIDS and inspire active measures to improve the situation. The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial became an important reminder that everyone can contribute to the fight against this epidemic.


Сьогодні 19 травня у Нарві відбулася зустріч, присвячена всесвітньому дню пам’яті людей, які померли від СНІДу.

О 12.00 на Петрівській площі запалили свічки у формі стрічки та згадали людей, які померли від СНІДу.

О 13.00 разом з нашими партнерами та медичними працівниками Нарвської лікарні встановили табличку пам’яті на території SA Narva Haigla та запалили пам’ятні свічки.

Також відвідали собор Воскресіння Христового, на території якого також є пам’ятна табличка EHPV.

Після цього відбувся обід толерантності.

Важливо всім згадувати та відзначати цей день з повагою та пам’яттю, бо інші люди живуть завдяки тому, що є лікування та дуже великий внесок зробили ті люди, яких  зараз не має поруч з нами …

Цього дня дуже хочеться підтримати і сказати всім: “Ми живемо! ВІЛ-не вирок!”


Today, we light a candle in solemn remembrance for all those we’ve lost to AIDS, and in honor of those who continue to fight. On this AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day, let’s renew our commitment to support, love, and remember. Together, we stand in solidarity, lighting the way toward hope and healing. #AIDSCandlelightMemorial …

On May 17th, as part of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT)

On May 17th, as part of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT), an important presentation of a study on the status of men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people took place in Estonia. This event marked a significant step towards raising awareness about the issues faced by these communities.

The study revealed numerous serious problems, including high levels of discrimination, stigmatization, and insufficient medical and psychological support. The presentation featured not only statistical data but also personal stories from participants, which helped to provide a deeper understanding of the context and the real situation. Participants expressed hope that the study’s results would serve as a foundation for further actions.

In 2024, the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial May 19

In 2024, the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial will focus on stigma, including self-stigma, experienced by people living with HIV. The theme for this year’s event is “Let’s Spread Love and Solidarity to Build Stronger Communities.” This day is an opportunity to look within, listen, learn, and take action!

The theme “Spread love and solidarity to build stronger communities!” underscores the significant barriers faced by HIV-positive individuals due to ongoing stigma and discrimination, which induce shame, self-doubt, and isolation, and prevent them from accessing necessary treatment and support. By addressing both external and internal stigma, we can help halt persistent negative narratives surrounding HIV infection, debunk myths and misconceptions about living with HIV, and put an end to the stigma and discrimination that have long hindered effective HIV prevention and treatment.

On this day, we remind ourselves and our communities that we are valuable, that we are more than HIV, that we can love ourselves, be loved, and pursue our dreams, and that by acting in solidarity, we can create a stronger community where members care for each other.

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial is an opportunity to honor the memory of those who perished as a result of the pandemic, and as a unified community, demonstrate our support for people living with HIV, reaffirming our commitment to continuing the work towards ending the HIV epidemic.

The world we want to live in. A world free from stigma is a world where everyone is treated with respect, where everyone is valued and esteemed, where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, where everyone believes they are loved, accepted, and included in society, and where everyone feels worthy. This is our goal for our community — for all HIV-positive individuals.

It’s time to change the narrative. We want to boldly address self-stigma and the pain it inflicts upon us, the growing need for mental health services, and the incredible power of self-respect, self-love, and solidarity that influence the accessibility of healthcare services for us and the extent to which we utilize them, as well as achieving the desired quality of life.

Invitation to the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial on May 19

On the eve of the AIDS Candlelight Memorial, traditionally observed annually on the third Sunday of May, the Estonian Network of HIV-Positive People (www.ehpv.ee) reaches out to the people of Estonia, the national government, and local authorities.

These are challenging times for all of us. We invite you to pay attention to people affected by HIV and AIDS who are in need of our collective support.

41 years of fighting the HIV epidemic have taught us that a rights-based approach and community action are crucial factors in combating any epidemic. Moreover, to swiftly and effectively counter the pandemic spread of the disease, it is essential to build trust between the community of those affected by the disease, government structures, and the healthcare system.

It could be said that viruses have invaded our consciousness and our lives, but what’s important is not the virus itself, but its consequences: stigma and discrimination (the limitation and loss of rights). When we become “infected” with these consequences, questions such as a person’s skin color, gender, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, whether they are infected with any disease, etc., become significant. The deeper this mental virus penetrates our consciousness, the more predisposed we are to behave prejudicially, unfairly, and violently, leaving stigmatized individuals to deal with their issues alone.

A persistently high level of HIV infection, the relentless rise in new infections, the increasing total number of HIV-infected individuals, the “aging” of the infection, and the spread of the epidemic from vulnerable population groups to the population at large due to the increasing number of sexually transmitted infections are today’s realities.

Advancements in modern medicine have transformed HIV infection from a deadly disease into a chronic health condition. HIV-positive individuals who initiate treatment with antiretroviral drugs and adhere to their doctor’s prescriptions can live long and fulfilling lives. While there is no cure for AIDS, it is possible to slow down the progression of the disease. Thanks to the availability of antiretroviral drugs in Estonia, HIV/AIDS should be viewed as a manageable condition rather than a death sentence.

In our collective understanding, the goal should be to reach a situation where there are no new cases of HIV infection, no discrimination against HIV-positive individuals, and no one dying from AIDS. However, achieving this requires investment and both government officials and individuals speaking openly and honestly about this issue.

When we understand how profoundly viruses impact our lives, we do everything possible to reduce the risk of infection.

We would like to express support to all those who have lost family members, friends, and acquaintances, and together, pray for those who are no longer with us. Since the epidemic was identified in the 1980s, more than 32 million people have died from AIDS and related illnesses, leading to irreplaceable losses, millions of orphaned children, and the destruction of even more lives.

This year marks the 41st anniversary since the first AIDS Candlelight Memorial in 1983, after years of combating the then little-known virus. On this day, we want everyone to reflect on the fact that HIV infection can affect each of us, including themselves personally. We hope this idea resonates with you on the same day.

Join us on May 19 at the following locations to honor the memory of those who have died from AIDS.
