Be part of our national sexual health campaigns
We’re looking for guys across Sydney to feature in one of our two upcoming health campaigns for men who have sex with men. One is about sexual health testing, and the other is for PrEP. It’s a campaign from our partner project, Emen8, that aims to raise awareness about symptoms, prevention and getting vaccinated.
You don’t need any previous experience to be involved — just a great attitude you’re happy to show on camera. Your support will go a long way in helping our community stay healthy and safe from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
Emen8 is an Australia-wide online sexual health and wellbeing initiative for gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. It’s produced as a partnership by ACON and Thorne Harbour Health. Visit them online at Emen8.com.au, Instagram and on Facebook.
About the campaign
Emen8 is producing two separate campaigns. The first aims to encourage regular sexual health testing among the community, while the other is focussed on educating the community on PrEP and the different ways you can take it. It’s a series of short 15 second videos, all of them punchy, informative, and a little bit cheeky.
The campaigns will be promoted nationally across Australia through social media channels, as well as advertising through relevant dating apps.
We’re seeking community members to be part of a series of short videos. Depending which you get selected for, you may be asked to record a voiceover to go along with the ad, but most of the roles don’t require too much acting experience. They’re all based in the everyday world, in typical scenarios such as at home, in an Uber, or at a bus stop.
We are after a group of diverse guys (cis and trans) – all ethnicities, body types, and personal styles are welcome! All submissions will undergo a vetting process with final selections to ensure a diverse representation of our communities.
So, whether you consider yourself a ‘twink’ or a ‘bear’, whether you’re into drag or leather – we want you!
We’re constantly looking for community talent so please don’t be disheartened if you don’t get selected for this one. Another one could be just around the corner!
