UNICEF Paint's Children in Black Face...

for New German Ad Campaign
The United Nations Children's Fund is running damage control after its new German advertising campaign was not so-well-received. Someone had the not-so-clever idea to splash four blond child models in mud to create blackface.
The public service announcements intended to draw attention to the education crisis in Africa by appealing "for solidarity with their contemporaries" in Germany. The adverts appeared in, among
other places, the most respected publications in the nation, such as Die Spiegel, Stern and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Roughly translated, the first ad reads, "In Africa, kids don't come to school late, but not at all" The translation below: "I'm waiting for my last day in school, the children in Africa still for their first one."

Black American expatriate blogger Black Women in Europe brought the campaign to international attention: "[It] is disturbing that this organisation thinks blackfacing kids with mud equals" showing "solidarity with African children," she notes. It also "ignores African academics and regular people andreduces a whole continent to a village of muddy uneducated, uncivilized people."
UNICEF issues a quasi-apology: "We apologize if you feel irritated by the make up of the children."

The Village Voice article on The House of Latex Ball

The House of Latex Ball will take you to another planet and leave you there. It’s a futuristic carnival with the sassiest voguers in town showing off their most glamorous animal prints, masks, latex, and feathers.

The 25-category competition supports AIDS/HIV awareness and features the city’s top houses—including Milan, Chanel, Xtravaganza, Ninja, and DeLaBlanca—battling it out in fabulous fashion as if there’s no tomorrow. For those who don’t know, houses (families of extravagant queer dancers and performers) and ballroom culture is where vogueing began. Categories include New Way Vogue Contortion-Destruction (plan to see plenty of precise double-jointed arm-and-leg extensions); All-American Runway—Fashion Week, Paris 2075 (they want competitors to come with a nasty look that will make us see the future); BQ Runway Bazaar Futuristic (think couture fun house); and plenty more. Awards range from $500 to $1,000. (Franklin)

At 8:30, Roseland Ballroom 239 W 52nd St Manhattan, NY 10019 West Side (212) 247-0200, $free

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the body's immune system. The immune system protects the body from infections and disease, but has no clear way to protect it from HIV. Over time, most people infected with HIV become less able to fight off the germs that we are all exposed to every day. Many of these germs do not usually make a healthy person sick, but they can cause life-threatening infections and cancers in a person whose immune system has been weakened by HIV.

People infected with HIV may have no symptoms for 10 or more years. They may not know they are infected. An HIV test is the only way to find out if you have HIV. See HIV Counseling and Testing for information and resources on HIV testing in New York State.

HIV is spread when infected blood, semen, vaginal fluids, or breast milk gets into the bloodstream of an individual through: direct entry into a blood vessel or through mucous linings, such as the vagina, rectum, penis, mouth, eyes, or nose, or a break in the skin.

-HIV is NOT spread through saliva (spit).
-HIV is spread through: Vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected partner with no barrier such as a condom
-Sharing needles, syringes or works
-Women with HIV can pass HIV to their babies during pregnancy, delivery and breastfeeding.
-People who are exposed to blood and/or body fluids at work, may be exposed to HIV through needles or other on-the-job exposures.
-It may also be possible to pass HIV through sharing needles for piercing or tattooing.
-The chances of HIV transmision through oral sex is low but not impossible.

A person infected with HIV can pass the virus to others even if the person:
Has no symptoms of HIV
-Has not been diagnosed with AIDS
-Is taking HIV medications
-Has an "undetectable" viral load

HIV is not spread by casual contact like sneezing, coughing, eating or drinking from common utensils, shaking hands, hugging, or use of restrooms and drinking fountains.

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a late stage of HIV disease. There are medications that have helped people living with HIV or AIDS live longer, healthier lives. Some people have lived for more than 20 years and have taken medicines for more than 10 years. But, there is still no cure.

Walk It Out - 60's Style


Domestic Violence And The GLBT Community

Domestic violence is another demon wrecking havoc on our society, when we (society) hear the words "Domestic Violence" we immediately think of a man physically or verbally inflicting pain on a woman... BUT this is NOT just a heterosexual problem, It's also very active in the gay community and the GBLT Community has and is putting up a good fight to eradicate this problem.

Sheryl Cates, Executive Director of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, stated there are five immediate indicators that a relationship could become or is violent...

1. Jealousy and possessiveness
2. Controlling behavior
3. Verbal, Physical and/ or Sexual abuse
4. Threats to harm you, your family or a pet
5. Isolation from friends and family
