The “Get Tested, Get In!” campaign saw over 500 young people get tested for HIV at locations such as AHF’s Out of the Closetin Brooklyn and at testing events in throughout NYC boroughs in June. Those who got tested using the new finger prick INSTI™ test – which takes less than 60 seconds to obtain results – were rewarded with a free ticket to gain entry to the concert. For many, this was their first time being tested for HIV.
