NEW YORK (AP) - Alan Cumming is in the red for World AIDS Day _ red sneakers that is.

The actor was the first person to don a pair of limited edition Converse sneakers released Wednesday by Red, an organization that raises money to fight AIDS. The sneakers are designed by British artist Damien Hirst.

Cumming says World AIDS Day is usually about, in his words, “Um, still no cure.” But this year there is actually good news.

He says he hopes others buy Red products to fund initiatives like the group’s campaign to get pregnant mothers access to medication that can prevent them from passing HIV on to their children. Red says could lead to an AIDS-free generation by 2015.

Cumming appears in CBS’ “The Good Wife” and the film “The Tempest,” which opens Dec. 10.
