Gaga and Cyndi Lauper for AIDS awareness

Friday, February 12, 2010

Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper are the new faces of the Mac Viva Glam Campaign, which promotes HIV/AIDS awareness amongst women. I just think this is such an important issue, and it makes me love Gaga even more that she's passionate about it. Below is their recent interview about the campaign on Good Morning America. If you don't have time to watch the interview, at least take away these facts:
  • The highest rates of HIV infection occur in women between 17-24 and women between 39-60
  • 3 in 5 (55%) of women admit they have never been tested for AIDS
  • 78% of women admit they've engaged in sex without a condom
  • On average, American women who do get tested do so every three years; for the average man, it's two years
  • The number of women living with AIDS has tripled since 1985
  • Black women between the ages of 18-35 die more from AIDS than from any other illness
