The ad was "created to inspire, inform, and reignite the passion needed to beat the HIV and AIDS epidemic once and for all."

Explains Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President & CEO, "GLAAD was founded in order to combat the sensationalized media coverage surrounding the HIV and AIDS crisis in the 80s, and we have been committed to this cause ever since. This campaign will help bring more awareness HIV and AIDS and remind everyone that we have the power to end this epidemic in our lifetime."

Joel Goldman, Managing Director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation comments, "HIV infection rates are up 133% in last decade among young gay men. It's troubling that 1 in 3 gay men have never had an HIV test. We must find new ways of raising awareness in order to reach this community and inform them of the tools available to prevent new infections. We are so fortunate to have the support from Logo as well as our incredible partners at GLAAD on this PSA campaign."

Says Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris in the spot, "Today we have the tools to make HIV history."
