AHF Celebrates International Condom Day in Shows Across the South

AIDS Healthcare Foundation brought a safe sex message to stages across the South, as a part of its International Condom Day campaign starting in January and continuing through February 13th.  International Condom Day (ICD), created by AHF and celebrated each year on February 13th (the day before Valentine’s Day), came about as an innovative and lighthearted way to remind people that wearing a condom can prevent pregnancy and STDs, including HIV.

The original ICD production features a burlesque style twist on the classic production, Westside Story. Through a mirage of colorful fan feathers, tightly-cinched corsets, and a never-ending supply of condoms, this stunning burlesque show had it all! The cast of powerhouse performers wowed the audience with wit and delighted them with dance numbers, all while promoting a good cause.

The tour launched in Houston, Texas on Sunday, January 30th, and made stops in Tampa, Florida (February 2nd), Orlando, Florida (February 5th), and ended in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (February 12th). ICD themed events will also be taking place in various countries across the globe. AHF, which now has over 1.6 million lives in care, will provide and distribute safely over 1 million free condoms in recognition of this significant holiday.
