Tis the season!!!

2013 has been so uber-exciting for us! There's so much to celebrate and be thankful for!

With the holiday season thisclose to being here, we were thrilled to hear that once again, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA), one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations, would be putting together their annual Broadway’s Carols for a Cure holiday album.

And what's more, guess which celebrity gossip blogger and Broadway fan they asked BACK to sing on the record? Duh, who else? PEREZ!!!

Not only that, but for the 15th volume of the wonderful series, an original song was written just for us! It's called Perez’s 2013 Holiday Dishlist and it was produced by Lynn Pinto, with Andros Rodriguez as the recording & mix engineer, Jason Michael Webb as the arranger & music director, and George Howe helping with lyrics.

OMG you guys — just WAIT till you hear it! It's going to mix all the magic of the season with all the juicy celebrity dirt from the past year!

And it case you missed it, CLICK HERE to listen to our X-Mas song from last year, A Perez Hilton Christmas!

Hillary Clinton To Be Honored At Elton John AIDS Foundation's 12th Annual Benefit!

hillary clinton to be honored at elton john aids foundation 12 annual benefit

More than 20 years ago, Sir Elton John founded the Elton John AIDS Foundation in hopes of thwarting the terrible disease, and the organization has grown quite a lot over the past couple of decades!

On October 15th, the EJAF will be hosting its 12th annual An Enduring Vision benefit at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, and it has a very impressive guest list!

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will be hosting the event for the 7th consecutive year, and one of the major guests of honor will be Hillary Rodham Clinton!

The former Secretary of State will be given the Founder's Award for her moving speech in Geneva, where she famously said "gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights," and she's also being recognized for her efforts to reach the goal of living in an AIDS free world!

It's so great to see Elton John's organization taking on such an important issue and making sure it doesn't simply get swept under the rug!

Hopefully events like these will continue to raise awareness and get even more people talking about how we can beat AIDS, once and for all!

Real World AIDS Activist Sean Sasser Dies At 44

Filed under: MTVR.I.P.Sad Sad

sasseraids

Sean Sasser, AIDS activist and former reality TV star, has died at age 44.

America knew him as Pedro Zamora’s boyfriend on MTV’s The Real World: San Francisco, back in the early 90s.

Pedro passed away soon after the show stopped filming, but Sean lived on to work for many political and social organizations and became a known AIDS activist.

Sean succumbed to mesothelioma yesterday, which has been linked to weakening the immune system of someone with AIDS.

This man shared his health issues to educate millions of young Americans about the horrible disease, and passed way too soon.

If this doesn't shed some light on how HIV and AIDS is still a huge issue, we don't know what will!

We're sure anyone surviving Sean is undoubtedly proud.

Brazil Takes Down 'Happy Prostitute' Anti-AIDS Campaign, Hates Happy Prostitutes!

Filed under: Business BlitzHealthSex

brazil prostitute campaign aids health testing

If you're a prostitute, you might as well be happy doing it, right?

According to Brazil's health ministry, which has removed a website proclaiming "I am happy being a prostitute" — NOPE!

The message was good, too: if you can't do away with prostitution, you might as well try and reduce the AIDS-related stigma suffered by prostitutes in an effort to encourage them to get treated for sexually-transmitted infections.

Critics slammed it for promoting prostitution

AIDS is a serious illness, as we all know, and if what this former lover of Liberace's is saying is true… well, it would be one of biggest letdowns of character we've ever experienced!

Though, it IS highly suspect that this info would come out so close to the new movie Behind the Candelabra!

Scott Throson was a former lover of Liberace's, and he claims that the legendary entertainer (played by Michael Douglas in the movie) was aware he had AIDS when he infected at least three of his young sex partners.

Here's what he said:
