Mondo Guerra's limited edition t-shirts for Piper Lime speak out on World AIDS Day

At the Denver Public Library's November Frock Out designer showcase, guest judge (and beloved local Project Runway runnerup) Mondo Guerra let a few cats out of the bag: He's staying in Denver because "it's our time;" after coming out as HIV-positive on Runway, he hopes to use his new fame to spread the word about the continuing global AIDS epidemic; and, pertinant to that, with help from the Gap's Piper Lime, he'd release two new limited edition t-shirts today, World AIDS Day. True to his word, the t-shirts are now available at Piper Lime's website, and you'll have to act fast to get one: There are only 300 of each. $20 of every purchase (the shirts are $50) benefits amfAR.
