The Elton John AIDS Foundation is partnering with social media giant TikTok for World AIDS Day on December 1st.
The campaign kicks off today with an HIV/AIDS Education & Awareness Quiz to test TikTokers’ knowledge of the disease, as well as helping to educate them about prevention and their own sexual health.
On World AIDS Day, there will be a live special at 11pm (Central) on Elton’s TikTok channel. It’ll be hosted by British actor Reggie Yates.The show will feature Elton and David Furnish as well as TikTok stars and celebrity guests, including superstar Sam Smith.
Talking about the partnership, Elton says, "I’m excited to recognize World AIDS Day with TikTok and my Foundation this year to celebrate progress that we’ve made and mark what we can do collectively to end the AIDS epidemic. HIV may seem a disease of the past, especially with COVID-19 in the headlines but it still affects everyone. We all need to care about HIV and end the discrimination around this disease. There’s a great line-up for our TikTok Live to break down the myths around HIV, talk about safe sex and ensure that young people know how to protect themselves and others.”
Members of the The TikTok community will be able to access donation stickers @EltonJohnAidsFoundation, which will help raise much-needed funds.
