Carmen Carrera posted on her Facebook page the news of what has been the silver lining to all the controversy over the past couple weeks. They were able to raise much needed money for HIV/AIDS research. Finally coming together to fight the real enemy a disease which is still affecting a majority of the LGBTQ Community.
We raised $245,000 for HIV/AIDS research by auctioning off the “two anatomy” nude images of me photographed by David LaChapelle for Life Ball 2014.
Thank you to Gery Keszler and everyone at Life Ball for this!! We did something great!! It feels amazing to be able to work with the best in the industry and contribute to Europe’s largest charity organization.
Know your status and get tested, we may not be able to raise that amount of money, but we can do something to fight against this horrible disease. Knowing is half the battle.
