Safer Sex in the City 2009

On June 25, 2009, partygoers mixed with celebrities at the AIDS Service Center NYC annual fundraiser, Safer Sex In The City 2009—Promoting Safer Sex in the Age of AIDS.

Supporting vital AIDS programs and attracting an energetic crowd of over 300, Safer Sex In The City was a huge success. The event was the premiere of ASC’s “Fight AIDS” music video to raise awareness about HIV testing, treatment and care.

John Legend granted ASC permission to record a music video set to the outstanding remix by RajStar of the song “If You’re Out There.” The visuals in the music video weave a tapestry of New Yorkers engaged in the fight against AIDS.

Held at Duvet-one of Manhattan's hottest nightclubs-this year's event included a VIP champagne lounge, exclusive celebrity experience, premium open bar, and delicious food. The evening was hosted by drag legend Flotilla DeBarge, Vivid Girl Savanna Samson, and superstar DJ Vic Latino. Guests enjoyed sizzling music and a special performance by hit singer Reina!

Along with great music, trend-setting crowd and entertainment, partygoers got a taste of ASC's work in HIV risk reduction by visiting our safer sex "demonstration" tables, viewed a curated sampling of erotic exhibits from The Museum of Sex, and bid on wonderful silent auction items.

Safer Sex In The City celebrates sex and sexuality with a commitment to safety and well-being, and reflects ASC's steadfast dedication to providing New Yorkers with HIV testing, treatment and care.
