National HIV Testing Day is an annual observance encouraging people to get tested for HIV and normalize testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Also known as National HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, National HIV Testing Day is observed annually on June 27.

National HIV Testing Day is commemorated in the United States to promote HIV testing, raise public knowledge of HIV, lower the stigma attached to HIV, and promote early diagnosis and treatment.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. For people with certain risk factors, the CDC recommends getting tested at least once a year. Find a HIV testing site near you at the CDC website.

"Desert Hearts" is being screened Thursday, June 1, 2023, at 7:00 p.m., at the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas, ArtsQuest Center, 101 Founders W, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, as part of The LGBTQ+ Film Series.

Donna Deitch’s swooning and sensual first film, Desert Hearts, was groundbreaking upon its 1986 release: a love story about two women, produced and directed by a woman. In the 1959-set film, an adaptation of a beloved novel by Jane Rule, straitlaced East Coast professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver) arrives in Reno to file for divorce, but winds up catching the eye of someone new, the younger free spirit Cay (Patricia Charbonneau), touching off a slow seduction that unfolds against the breathtaking desert landscape. With smoldering chemistry between its two leads, an evocative jukebox soundtrack, and vivid cinematography by Robert Elswit, Desert Hearts beautifully exudes a sense of tender yearning and emotional candor.

This screening will be followed by a live Q&A/talkback with the film's director Donna Deitch.
