The Red Ribbon Revue is created by Lortel nominee Sam Bolen (Midnight at The Never Get, ASSASSINS) and baritone/conductor Brian Mummert (ChamberQUEER), both of whom are living with HIV. They are joined this year by producer Noah Eisenberg (Circle Jerk) and music director Farrah Rothman.

The inaugural Red Ribbon Revue took place on World AIDS Day 2019 and raised over $15k for mothers2mothers. "The idea sprang from a desire to fight against the stigma of HIV by giving HIV-positive performers the spotlight to share their status and stories without shame or fear," says Bolen. "The history of the AIDS crisis is tragic, but the music that came out of it is so full of life. Sharing it is a celebration of how far we've come and how much life we have yet to live."

mothers2mothers (m2m) is a nonprofit organization based in sub-Saharan Africa that delivers transformative health outcomes as well as livelihood and empowerment opportunities for women and families. Since 2001, mothers2mothers has created nearly 12,000 jobs for women living with HIV as community health workers, making it likely the largest intentional employer of women living with HIV in the world. These "Mentor Mothers" provide health services, advice, and support to women and their families at health facilities and door-to-door in local communities, and remotely through eServices reaching over 15 million clients since its founding. Mentor Mothers are armed with the knowledge of how it feels to be in their clients' shoes and are trusted members of their communities - a simple, but incredibly effective, model of sisterhood.
