These Selfies Support HIV

More Than Selfies

Celebs take to social media to boost an HIV cause.

The news that 12 organizations in the South will receive $625,000 in an effort to address the disproportionate impact of the HIV epidemic on young people and communities of color, sent celebs to Twitter to celebrate. The series of grants are a collaboration of The Elton John AIDS Foundation, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, and the Aileen Getty Foundation. It’s the largest philanthropic partnership addressing HIV in the Southern United States.

“By bringing particular focus on the needs and aspirations of young people and communities of color, and by delivering support to community- rooted organizations that have been engaging the epidemic for years, this partnership has incredible potential to reduce transmissions, improve quality of life, and speed the South’s progress toward an AIDS-free generation,” says EJAF Chairman David Furnish. After the announcement, these celebs tweeted out their excitement.
