I don’t need to wear one of those, famous last words, 1980s

Created in the late 1980s by People of Color Against AIDS, a Seattle-based AIDS service organization, “I don’t Need to Wear One…” asked men of color to protect their partners by wearing a condom. The organization recognized that it needed to engage both men and women of all sexual orientations to effectively change people’s sexual behaviors in ways that would lessen the likelihood of contracting HIV.
