National Condom Day!

It’s the most wonderful day of the year on Thursday 2/14: National Condom Day!

Join CU Student Global AIDS Campaign (CUSGAC) and GlobeMed for National Condom Day on February 14th, 2013 from 11:30 AM to 4 PM outside Butler! (Rain location: Lerner Piano Lounge) We will be giving out free condoms and lube, safer sex info, and hot cocoa. You can also join SGAC’s campaign to sign & send valentines to senators asking them to stand up for global health funding and have your picture taken for GlobeMed’s upcoming celebration of World Day of Social Justice (February 20th). Check out the event page on Facebook:

In the spirit of National Condom Day, here are some safer sex tips!

1. Make sure you know how to use condoms correctly — always check the expiration date; pinch the tip of the condom while rolling it onto a penis to leave space to prevent breakage; hold onto the base of the condom when withdrawing. Got more questions? Learn more in this very comprehensive guide to condom use:

2. Lube prevents condom breakage and can make sex more enjoyable.! There are many kinds to try, but make sure that you use only water- or silicone-based lubricant with condoms (oil-based lubes will destroy condoms).

3. Did you know you can make a dental dam from a condom? Learn how here:

Stop by on Thursday for more information, free stuff, and to show some love for global health by supporting our campaigns!

Kicking off Spring 2013

I hope your spring semester is getting off to a great start! As a reminder, we still have meetings every week on Wednesdays at 8 PM in the Dodge Room of Earl Hall. If you’re looking for a new way to get involved this semester, we have a lot of events in the works like call-ins to legislators, lobbying visits, writing op-eds, and actions. We would love to have your input at meetings!

See below for info about a great discussion happening on Wednesday evening — join Lambda Pi Chi and Omega Psi Phi to learn more about the AIDS epidemic and its current, very disproportionate effects on communities. A very important discussion to have, as the AIDS epidemic is not over within the US, either. I hope you’ll attend!

Stay tuned for CUSGAC events coming up soon!


How big does it need to get before you take NOTICE!


1. It is estimated that Americans between the ages of 13 to 24 are contracting HIV at a rate of 2 people every hour.

2. While young people are only 16% of the population, people under the age of 25 represent an estimated 50% of all new HIV infections. The majority of these cases are contracted sexually.

3. Black and Hispanic women account for only 29% of the New York female population, but together they represent 86% of New York women living with HIV/AIDS.
