A few weeks ago, the L.A. County Department of Public Health announced that it was going to give New York City a run for their money and release a Los Angeles-inspired condom. Now, the judges have been announced in the citywide competition for the condom wrapper's design.

They are:

  • Perez Hilton (pictured)
  • Oriol Gutierrez, Deputy Editor, POZ Magazine
  • David Stern, Publisher of Frontiers IN LA Magazine
  • Pepe Torres, Publisher of Adelante Magazine
  • Scott McPherson, Creative Director of The Advocate Magazine, HIV Plus Magazine & co-founder of The Stigma Project
  • Julia Allison, relationship expert, columnist, and star of BRAVO's new reality show "Miss Advised," set to premiere June 18.

In other words, if you want Perez taking a close look at your condom, be sure to get your design in ASAP. The deadline is June 17, and designs can be submitted on the contest's website.
