earlier this month the elton john aids foundation launched love is in my blood, a campaign that not only aims to raise awareness of aids, but also that to fight the disease more funding, commitment and compassion is required from the international community and individuals alike. the foundation is spearheading this campaign with the help of renowned artist ai weiwei, who has created a short film to remind the world that the fight against aids is winnable, but only if we have enough love and compassion to ensure that no one is left behind or made to feel ashamed for being hiv-positive. our friend, london-based brazilian artist mateus bailon, contributed to the campaign with a beautiful artwork in his signature style.
