About this work

Description

One of a series of postcards issued as part of Gay Men Fighting AIDS's campaign during 1994 to encourage gay men to have safer sex. This was handed out at the Gay Pride festival in July 1994. The card shows a cheeky, attractive young sailor smiling and brandishing a condom in a foil pack with another young sailor in the background wearing a vest with his underpants down around his knees, awaiting sexual attentions. The campaign aimed to make condom use part of gay men's sexual behaviour and to make condoms sexy. The text mentions the government's poor funding of AIDS campaigns and Parliament's homophobic reaction to the proposal of an equal age of consent of 16 for both hetero- and homosexuals.
