We were going to show you many really gay, Broadway and show tunes signed memorabilia as part of our Bid 2 Beat AIDS auction spotlight today. However, we’ve changed our minds. There is a travesty occurring during this auction, and no, we are not talking about the measly $20.01 bid for Bradford’s voice mail.
Steven Meisel is one of America’s best and most famous photographers. He is best known for his photos of Madonna as well as his photo shoots for the Versace clothing line. In the early 90s Meisel created these beautiful “Safe Sex is Hot Sex” posters for the Red Hot AIDS organization. There are five posters total and only one has a bid. This is not right.
These posters are works of arts, true collector’s pieces. They document a different era in the fight against AIDS. We think it’s a shame there has been no bidding.
