HIV/AIDS PSA launched by GLAAD and Taylor Foundation
From a press release
2016-04-27

New York, NY — GLAAD has released a Public Service Announcement ( PSA ) in partnership with The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation ( ETAF ). The PSA, produced by Martian Entertainment is meant to push awareness about the fight to end the HIV and AIDS epidemic. See www.youtube.com/watch .

The PSA harnesses the power and emotion of Elizabeth Taylor's speech at the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert and includes participation from Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Lane, Tituss Burgess, and Daniel Franzese. The four point out that even 20 years after that historic speech an estimated 1 in 5 gay men in major U.S. cities are living with HIV, and that today, we have the tools to make HIV history. The PSA will air on Logo beginning on Thursday, April 28th and will also be available on GLAAD's YouTube channel.

"HIV infection rates are up 133% in last decade among young gay men," Joel Goldman, Managing Director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation noted. "It's troubling that 1 in 3 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."
