Are red ribbons a new thing?

No, red ribbons aren’t new. Many times, our favourite celebrities have appeared on-screen wearing red ribbons in support of World AIDS Day including Simon Cowell and Louis Tomlinson.

According to World AIDS Day, the day itself was founded in 1988 and was the first-ever global health day.

While most outlets are in support of the National AIDS Trust, Graham Norton was once told off for wearing a red ribbon on his show as the BBC rules state that they’re to remain impartial when it comes to campaigns or charities.
