â€œDecAIDS: Anything is Possibleâ€
Saturday, November 11th at 7 p.m. ET/PT (60 mins.)
DecAIDS: Anything is Possible brings viewers behind the scenes of Canada’s hottest fashion fundraising event – Fashion Cares â€“ a renowned, annual gala in support of the AIDS Committee of Toronto. In its 20 th year, Fashion Cares have raised nearly $10 million to date and continues to generate more awareness about HIV and AIDS. The documentary follows the event’s mastermind, artistic director Phillip Ing, as he planned and executed his final Fashion Cares show this year. Ing reflects on the challenges and triumphs organizers have faced in the last two decades to earn credibility, respect, and acceptance in a world not entirely comfortable with the growing visibility of the gay community.
