This summer ALRP is a proud beneficiary of the 2013 Up Your Alley Street Fair (aka Dore Alley). Please join us on Sunday, July 28 at the Folsom Street Events kick-off street fair!

This fun leather/fetish street fair unites adult alternative lifestyle communities with safe venues for self-expression and exciting entertainment.

ALRP is once again a major beneficiary and we need more volunteers than ever! First-time volunteers, Panel attorneys, and street fair stalwarts are welcome to sign up.

By volunteering, you’ll have fun and ensure that ALRP is able to provide low-cost legal services to people living with HIV/AIDS.

GREAT PERKS for volunteers! At the Fair HQ, you will find:

  • Free food and beverages all day
  • Private restrooms with no lines
  • Free coat check (stash a costume or change of clothes)
  • Tables, chairs, and shade for relaxing
