Stephen Fry wants you to ‘Rock the Ribbon’ this World AIDS Day

Stephen Fry opens up about prostate cancer struggle

British actor Stephen Fry has prompted his fans to show their support to those living with HIV on World AIDS Day.

The presenter has voiced over a video by National AIDS Trust urging everyone to ‘Rock the Ribbon’. The red ribbon has become the traditional symbol of awareness and support for people living with HIV/AIDS.

The one-minute-and-half clip features actress and choreographer Sherrie Silver. Silver is famous for choreographing Childish Gambino’s groundbreaking video This Is America.

Silver took on rhythmic gymnastics for this special occasion. She, in fact, uses a long red ribbon while dancing in an empty theatre.

At the end of the clip, the low voice of Stephen Fry says: ‘Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, show your support for people living with HIV this World AIDS Day and Rock the Ribbon.’

‘In hope of a bright future’

The Wilde actor also took to Twitter to share the video.

‘Today is #WorldAIDSDay – I do hope to see you all #RockTheRibbon, out of respect for those lost, and in hope of a bright future,’ he tweeted.
