This past sunday, we held an open photoshoot to all friends and supporters to stand in solidarity for the support of World AIDS Day. AIDS stands as a leading killer in the African-American community. African Americans sum up more than 50% new cases of AIDS/HIV, while only holding a 12% stake in the US population.
Know your status, because knowing is beautiful. This month, we are banding together to generate awareness and promote testing to fight against the spreading epidemic. Thank you to all those who came out to recieve their new profile pictures! If you did not make it! Please post a photo of one of your friends’ in support! As well as tweet about it! #WAD2011!! Many other opportunities will present themselves as the month goes on! Be on watch!
MEN!!! Don’t make me call ya’ll out, because as MEN we are to be leaders, and quite frankly, we are the LEADING problem in this epidemic, and currently are doing NOTHING to help in the betterment of our community in this aspect. MEN were scarce for the photo shoot but must not be scarce for the campaign. JOIN US!
SN: Thank you to our sponsor, MAC cosmetics, for providing such lovely talent and artistry for this shoot!
