The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest non-profit HIV/AIDS organization in the world, will be bringing ‘Burlesque: A Celebration of Safer Sex’ to Atlanta.
AHF will be utilizing the arts to share a message of safe sex in a non-judgmental, non-stigmatized space. The burlesque-style dance show promotes this critical safe-sex message of condom usage to address the nation’s rising rates of STIs.
Incorporating the style of choreography created by Robert “Bob” Fosse, AHF commissioned award-winning choreographer Eartha Robinson to highlight the “Safer is Sexy” message by creating a series of individual dance performances depicting sexual scenarios where condoms are both present and shown as sexy and safe protective options. The show will be hosted by transgender comedian Flame Monroe.
“AHF is putting sexy back in safe sex,” said AHF president Michael Weinstein. “Our own brands of condoms Love and Icon send clear messages. Love is the best protection! A man can be an Icon by protecting himself and his partner.”
The event will take place on March 3 at the Rialto Center for Arts at Georgia State University. Doors open at 6pm, and the show begins at 7pm. Tickets are free, and all are welcome; RSVP at ahf.org/ICD.
