World AIDS Day Debut: The Look/Listen/Love/Respect Campaign
World AIDS Day is tomorrow, and four actresses have recorded PSAs urging gay men to look out for themselves and those in their community. Crystal meth and unsafe sex are the focus of the new campaign debuting tonight on LOGO (during Noah's Arc) and tomorrow on Here! networks, featuring messages from Susan Sarandon, Amanda Peet, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rosie Perez.
Said Dan Carlson, founder of HIV Forum NYC, who together with the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center in NYC produced the PSAs: "Despite knowing that condoms prevent HIV transmission, many gay men continue to engage in risky and self-destructive behavior. As we mark World AIDS Day and the 25th anniversary of the discovery of HIV, we wanted to reframe the conversation among gay men about condom use and redefine what that simple act means."
