Be part of a national MPXV (Monkeypox) campaign

We’re looking for guys across Sydney to feature in a new campaign about MPXV (Monkeypox). 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 help guys across Australia stay safe from this virus affecting our communities.

About Emen8:

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 and on Facebook.

About the campaign

Emen8 is producing a campaign to promote awareness of MPXV (Monkeypox), including transmission, symptoms, prevention, and vaccination. The aim is to educate our communities, keep everyone safe and encourage guys to get vaccinated.

The campaign launch aims to coincide with the arrival of more vaccines into Australia over the coming weeks and months.

Looking for YOU!

We’re seeking community members to be part of a series of short videos. The videos will feature guys in different segments. Videos will use a voiceover artist, so there’s no need to read a script or speak on camera. The voiceover themes encourage awareness of MPXV and promote the vaccine that protects against it. The video will be shared through Emen8’s online and social media channels, such as Facebook and Instagram.

We are after a group of diverse guys (cis and trans) – all ages, 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!
