Hot! Karen Civil, Amber Rose & More Join the “Know your Status Tour!!!”

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 11, 2017) – The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) announced the launch of the Know Your Status Tour (KYST), a multi-city mobile campaign geared towards educating college students on the importance of safe sex, taking the proper precautions to avoid contracting STDs, and if already infected, how to combat and live a normal, day to day life. The AFH Youth Task Force will team up with Social Media Influencers and Pop Culture Influencers Nina Parker, Karen Civil, Don Benjamin, Amber Rose, Sibley, Cordell Broadus, Jacquees and more, to reach even more college students across the nation while on tour.

The highly anticipated KYST kicks off on Wednesday, April 12th at FAMU in Tallahassee, Florida, with second and third stops at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta on Thursday, April 20th and Texas Southern University in Houston on Wednesday, April 26th (see list of talent/participants below). Chris Grace, Founder of the KYST Program, creatively meshed the worlds of social impact with sexual education by having respected influencers on the KYST to create an environment of comfort and familiarization to encourage open dialogue.

“Each year, 12 million young people contract an STI and there is an undeniable urgency to target safer sex messages that are interactive, engaging, and relevant to their lives and experiences. With the Know Your Status Tour, we are doing our part to educate our youth on the importance of being tested regularly for STIs and help them form good sexual health habits that they can take with them long into adulthood,” Grace explains.

The tour will feature celebrity panel discussions, breakout discussions, specialized school activities, social media pledges and musical performances by influential artists including Epic Records’ Hip-Hop artist Kent Jones (DJ Khaled/We the Best Music Group). Students who participate in STD and HIV testing will receive a custom t-shirt and be eligible to win prizes including: 1) $5,000 student scholarship, 2) Pimp My Dorm Room for participating schools, and 3) Tablet giveaway for each campus.
