Wrap It Up: The Safe Sex Ball

Updated 12/6/2012

No raw dogs allowed at Safe Sex Ball, a World AIDS Day benefit

The Safe Sex Ball offers free STD testing all night.

Celebrate World AIDS Day in style with this soirée to benefit the Minnesota AIDS Project and PrideAlive, which works to prevent HIV transmission. In a "Project Runway"-meets-"RuPaul's Drag Race" twist, the evening includes a fashion faceoff in which participants walk the runway in a look created from "prevention materials" -- think condoms, lube, dental dams and cervical blockers. Others will "Vogue" along the runway in dance-offs inspired by the Madonna video. There will also be battles for "Safe Sex Siren," "All American Runway Fashion" and "Realness" and free STD testing available all night. (9 p.m.-midnight Sat. $10. 18-plus. In the Heart of the Beast Theatre, 1500 E. Lake St., Mpls. 612-373-2437 or www.mnaidsproject.org.) JAHNA PELOQUIN
