SCENE & HEARD: Tanya Stephens’ colour power + Massive support for Hall-of-Famer Richard Byles, Dahlia Harris hosts World AIDS Day launch, and more

UP FRONT: Nov. 16, Kingston. Ahead of delivering the keynote address, health minister Dr. Christopher Tufton (right) was snapped, alongside the National Family Planning Board's Andrea Campbell and AHF's Dr. Kevin Harvey taking in the proceedings at last Thursday’s press launch to announce activities set to mark World AIDS Day (December 1). “We Have the Right to Health: Keep the Promise, Don’t Turn Your Back on Me” is the theme for World AIDS Day 2017.

SETTING THE PACE: Nov. 16, Kingston. A woman who wears multiple hats with easy-breezy finesse, the impeccably dressed Dahlia Harris (pictured here with the NFPB's Diana Thomas-Campbell) made a delightful emcee at Thursday’s World AIDS Day press launch at the Courtleigh Hotel & Suites in New Kingston. In addition to a march from Mandela Park to Emancipation Park and a youth expo and concert later in the evening, planned activities to mark World AIDS Day 2017 include a song competition and a visual arts competition.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS: Nov. 13, Kingston. Richard Byles’ long-awaited induction into the PSOJ Hall of Fame, as the 25th outstanding Jamaican so honoured, brought out some of the biggest names from the public and private sectors (several of whom joined him on stage to share in the moment) last Monday night at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston.

SHOCK VALUE: Nov. 12, Kingston. Scores of her loyal fans flocked to the Macau Lounge recently to catch a live performance by Tanya Stephens, who upped the drama with a riot of punk-rock pink hair, as she reeled off the hits, old and new, from her vast and diverse catalogue. (Photo: Skkan Media)

IN THE FRAME: Nov. 12, Kingston. Designers, artisans and lots of craft purveyors had their goods on display at last week’s renewal of the MoDA Market at the Worthington, Spanish Court Hotel, where plenty of glorious sights and lots to buy kept the shopaholics occupied.(Photo: Skkan Media)
