Condom art

Glenda has put up an incredible post about Condoms as a Fashion (Social) Statement. It is gorgeous.

Well, thank you. I was quite surprised to see this here. We have got to beat this disease.

Glenda, I think the only reason there is not a cure, or viable vaccine, is because the "powers that be" have consistently marginalized HIV/AIDS as either a gay or a drug-related or a black disease. They dismiss it as a "plague" belonging to the "sinful" few.

I raised about $18,000 on three AIDS Bike Rides - two of the Twin Cities to Chicago Rides, for AIDS care services; and on the 2000 Alaska AIDS Vaccine Ride which was funding three researchers trying to find a vaccine. I'm a middle-aged, white, Jewish Grandmother, straight; not high-risk at all; and I rode because I believe it is everyone's disease, and everyone's responsibility to face it and find a cure.

And the condom wearable art is a gorgeous way to make a statement.
