Youth Day at AIDS 2012 Is Wednesday!

D.C.’s Metro TeenAIDS is presenting Youth Day at AIDS 2012 tomorrow, July 25. It’s a full day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Global Village of the XIX International AIDS Conference.

Nicole StylesNicole Styles, MTA’s community outreach coordinator, will be onsite talking about female condoms and encouraging visitors to take part in the Universal Access to Female Condoms Paper Doll Campaign, aiming to break the Guinness record for longest paper-doll chain.

“It’s been used all over the world,” she says of the campaign to raise awareness about female condoms, adding that her team has made more than 160 dolls so far. “It’s interesting to see the dolls from other countries. It’s cool. It’s empowerment.”

Also cool is the 3:15 p.m. event she just can’t talk about – but it rhymes with “crash knob.”

Entrance to the Global Village, at 9th and M Streets NW, is free. But while admission is free, Metro TeenAIDS would really like to know you’re coming. Please RSVP to
