Feel Good and Look Glam on World AIDS Day!

VIVA Glam

Mac Cosmetics VIVA Glam with Ricky Martin & Nicki Minaj

This Saturday, instead of going out to the Mall to finish shopping for the holiday season, head over to MAC Cosmetics for the VIVA Glam Collection. Hip-Hop Diva Nicki Minaj and Iconic Pop Star Ricky Martin have joined the ranks of the VIVA Glam lineup to fight HIV/AIDS around the Globe!

The MAC AIDS Fund was launched in 1994 and developed to support people who are living with HIV/AIDS worldwide. The MAC AIDS Fund donates to communities that offer services and help to and prevent the HIV/AIDS through educational programs and services. Positive Link, a program of Indiana University Health has been a proud recipient of money from the MAC AIDS Fund.

VIVA Glam started its first campaign with the “Supermodel of the World” & Drag Superstar RuPaul followed by “non-lipstick lesbian” (thier words) KD Lang.  The VIVA Glam lineup is a veritable “who’s who” of entertainment.  From Hip-Hop artists like Missy Elliot, Lil Kim, EVE, R&B songstress Mary J. Blige, Country Music’s Lisa Marie Presley, Famed burlesque performer Dita von Teese, to icons like Boy George, Sir Elton John, Lady Gaga & Cyndi Lauper.

MAC Cosmetics has agreed to match at 100% all of the sales of the VIVA Glam collection on World AIDS Day!  That two times the money going to the MAC AIDS Fund to help vital programs like Positive Link, a program of Indiana University Health.

So head over to MAC cosmetics and get your lip kissable soft with Ricky’s Lip Conditioner and ready for a night on the town with Nicki’s pink show stopping lipstick.  I am sure there is someone on your list that would love to have a little Glam in their holiday! Oh and buy a little something for yourself!

Is It 1990 Again?

From change.org:

Is It 1990 Again? HIV/AIDS Myths are Alive and … Scary

by Elizabeth Lombino

“Don’t drink from the same glass of an AIDS patient.” “AIDS may be able to spread by coughing or sneezing.” “Having AIDS means you’re dead in 5 years.” “AIDS meds can kill you quicker than AIDS.” “You can tell someone has AIDS just by looking at them.” “I can’t get AIDS – it only happens to ‘those people.'”
These are examples of statements and myths that were made back during the early years of the AIDS epidemic.  The statements are also reflective of the derogatory language used during that time. No one would say these statements or use this language now, right? Wrong. Myths like these continue to spread quicker than HIV itself. This is a very scary scenario.
