Express your interest to be part of Ending HIV’s Mardi Gras Campaign 2020.

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN:

The vision of the Ending HIV initiative is to see the elimination of HIV notifications in NSW. This is achievable by encouraging all sexually active gay and bisexual men to test often for HIV and STIs, take treatment early and practise safe sex in all its forms. The next campaign aims to re-engage the community around the great strides achieved today in the fight against HIV as well as to motivate the community to keep up the pace. Its launch will coincide with Fair Day 2020 and run during the Mardi Gras festival.

1. ‘THANK YOU’ VIDEO

The video component will feature community members saying different segments of a short script direct to camera. The theme of the script is about thanking our partners and the community for playing their part towards ending HIV. The video will be shared via Ending HIV’s online and social channels such as Facebook and Instagram.

2. PHOTOGRAPHY

There will also be a photoshoot to develop other promotional materials for this campaign and the next phase. The photos will include a variety of combinations of individuals, 2 people and 3 people. Some of the group shots will imply the subjects as sexual partners and for those willing – kissing shots (lips to lips only). For the kissing shots, we encourage people who are already friends, partners or comfortable kissing each other. The photos will be utilised for outdoor billboards, posters, print, magazines, dating apps and social media.

We are after a group of diverse guys (different ages, ethnicities, body types and personal styles) to be part of the video and photoshoot. All submissions will undergo a vetting process and selections made to ensure representation of the wider community.

So, whether you consider yourself a ‘twink’ or a ‘bear’, whether you’re into video games or leather – we want you!
