Today’s the day: June 27 is officially National HIV Testing Day, and — as this week’s Philadelphia Weekly cover story discussed — thanks to the efforts of Philadelphia FIGHT and others, young Philadelphians aged 13-24 who get an HIV test today at any of these locations can receive a free ticket to see hip-hop artist Wale and host of other MCs, including the dope Chill Moody, at the Trocadero Theatre tonight, starting at 7pm. Hurry, y’all — this really is last call. 

Another incentive: HIV test-takers today will automatically be entered into a raffle for tickets to see Beyonce and Jay Z’s “One the Run” tour when it hits Citizens Bank Park on Sat., July 5. So if you needed a reason to check your status — beyond, you know, staying on top of your health and well-being — there it is.
