Softcore Israeli AIDS Campaign Has ‘Adam And Steve,’ Trans Goodness (NSFW)

This post is also available in: Português Deutsch

The tagline for the Israel AIDS Task Force’s new awareness campaign is “It’s better to know,” as in, your HIV-status. They’re right; about 240,000 people in the U.S. and 5,130 Israelis don’t realize they have HIV — that’s a total population roughly the size of Reno, Nevada.

But while we love their message, we’re really digging their photo campaign because it sexes up the Adam and Eve story with some gay-softcore and a transgender model named, get this, Eden. Ugh! Gagging!

Everyone remembers the Adam and Eve story — God tells the presumably straight couple not to eat fruit from the tree of knowledge, then a Satanic serpent tempts Eve to eat it, and she does. God finds out, gets all pissed-off, kicks Adam and Eve out from the Garden of Eden, forces them to get full-time jobs, and they’re all sad and dejected and like, “I’m soooooo sorry, God!” But it’s too late. They ended up giving birth to a murderer and then a few thousand years later Enron happened.

The IATF’s photo series goes against the heavy-handed biblical teaching and makes eating forbidden fruit sexy again — oh yes… forbidden fruit tastes the best! They also buck convention and put queers in the garden — not just Eden the trans model and her possibly straight or bisexual lover, but also few tattooed, hairy, gay otters tromping around the greenery. The Garden of Eden had otters and bears, right? Maybe even a few wolves and silver foxes — RAWR! Paradise indeed.

Anyway, go get tested.
