David Furnish, who is also the grand marshal of the Pride parade, was happy to mingle with each and every guest at Harry Rosen’s flagship store on Bloor. He revealed his own PILL XXV diamond bracelet, which for the millions of people living with HIV, a pill means one more day of life and a better life. 30% of proceeds from the sale of the jewellery goes to the foundation with the mission to help treat, prevent and ultimately end HIV.

Larry Rosen was also present at the event to celebrate this occasion. As Furnish mentioned at this launch event, it was a great time to rejoice after the recent milestone ruling of same sex marriage by the Supreme Court of the US.

The PILL XXV jewellery collection can be found at Harry Rosen including the Toronto Bloor Street location.
