World AIDS Day

Today is World Aids Day. It began on December 1, 1990.  Don't think it's under control and going away. Every year, 2 million people die of AIDS related illness. It is not just the gay cancer anymore. People are still being as stupid as ever and thinking that they are bullet proof. I have a dear friend who can attest to that fact and has found out the hard way that you indeed are not.

Do your bit. Buy a red ribbon and practice safe sex. Buenos Aires raised awareness in 2005 by placing a ginormous pink condom over their phallac symbol, the Obelisk;



What will you do?

Hey I've just noticed that the intials for World AIDS Day is WAD... (I know,tiny things please tiny minds).

Gee could you imagine a city in Oz doing something like the giant condom? In a way our country is so backwards.

Our country is very backwards. Argentines are conservative in one way but so forward thinking in other ways.
We do stem from the Brits,remember?

Argentina was one of the first countries to legalise gay marriage and they have a female prime minister (albeit a fucked up drag queen resplendant with horrible plastic surgery while poverty rises)....

True on being hte backwards country. Imagine if Abbott got to be PM!!..

Well I promise to wear protection when required. Sad to say that it would need to be slightly smaller than the one in the pic you posted :P

Every country has it's faults.

If Abbott makes PM,I'm buying a one way ticket to Buenos Aires.


I'm glad to hear that your latex raincoat will be smaller than one on the Obelisk!

BA - For the phalic symbols? Or lack of Tony Abbott?

Margarita Milonguita said...

For everything or as they say there 'Por todos'...

I think Buenos Aires might just be the true love of my life...
