Each year, World AIDS Day falls on December 1st as an opportunity to remember those we have lost to the pandemic and to support those who are in battle against the deadly killer. In a pursuit of raising money and awareness for the cause, Proper Attire Condoms are releasing limited edition condoms this year round which are adorned in the signature designs from legendary artist Keith Haring.
Proper Attire Condoms pride themselves on a product that can be stylish too. No need to be shy of carrying around ill-packaged condoms when you can now show off your safety-cool approach to sex with Keith Haring illustrated condoms representing life and love.
An artist who flourished in the New York art scene during the 80′s, Keith Haring was involved in both the graffiti and pop-art scenes where he created friendships with Futura 2000, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Madonna. In 1988, Haring was diagnosed with AIDS which lead him to establish the Keith Haring Foundation in 1989 to provide funding and imagery to AIDS organizations and children’s programs. A year later Haring died from AID related complications.
