Social activism through music and pop culture? Red Hot pioneered that through our trailblazing and unforgettable debut project Red Hot and Blue, released September 25th, 1990. Featuring music, art & fashion from David Byrne, Debbie Harry (Blondie) & Iggy Pop, Neneh Cherry, Jean Paul Gaultier, Keith Haring, Jim Jarmusch, Annie Lennox, k.d. lang, U2, Tom Waits and dozens more, Red Hot paid tribute to Cole Porter, an iconic figure in music and LGBTQ activism. We've donated over $1 Million to life-changing organizations like ACT UP and T.A.G., which advocate for people with AIDS/HIV to get access to vital medication, and many more. With over two million physical units sold, Red Hot joins the new frontier - streaming!
