Gay celebrities star in new HIV/AIDS awareness video

2016-04-28
A host of celebrities have lent their voices to a new video to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. Neil Patrick Harris, Tituss Burgess, Nathan Lane and Looking's Daniel Franzese highlight the continued disproportionately high rates of HIV amongst gay men in US in the clip for GLAAD and the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, which also features footage of the late Elizabeth Taylor’s stirring speech about HIV at the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. "HIV infection rates are up 133% in last decade among young gay men," says managing director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, Joel Goldman. "It’s troubling that one in three gay men have never had an HIV test. We must find new ways of raising awareness in order to reach this community and inform them of the tools available to prevent new infections. We are so fortunate to have the support from Logo as well as our incredible partners at GLAAD on this PSA campaign." Check out the video below, and visit elizabethtayloraidsfoundation.org for more.
