Here comes the red ribbon

Come December 1, 2014, millions worldwide will be flaunting a red ribbon of some sort. It’s amazing to see how the iconic simple red ribbon has evolved since the first World AIDS Day in 1998, becoming more and more creative with each year. There are mosaics, quilts, tattoos, even ribbons written in the clouds. Gotta love Pinterest, until they suspend your account for pinning an “inappropriate” pic (in my defense it was the hottest naked man I’d seen in a long time; a sleeping beau with bulging biceps and virility that covered one third of the screen that made me swallow involuntarily…pure art has that effect on me).
