In recognition of International Condom Day, an informal annual celebration of safer sex held on February 13 in conjunction with Valentine’s Day, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, hosted a number of condom distribution and awareness-raising activities on every continent, spreading safer sex messages in 28 countries around the world.
The events were hosted under the theme “Love is the Best Protection,” meaning that one’s love for themselves and their partners is motivation for safer sex. Nearly all of the events included distribution of AHF’s LOVE-branded condoms in high-traffic areas of each city. SFVRD was the only roller derby league in Los Angeles asked to participate and players volunteered to skate around in North Hollywood and distribute condoms to evening commuters as they came off of the Metro line at Lankershim and Magnolia. SFVRD was happy to work in partnership with the AHF to deliver their message. A special thank you to the skaters that volunteered their time!
