History

Notes

This set of posters was sold for a nominal sum to the Powerhouse Museum by ACON. The poster series was designed to target homosexual men and intended for display in places they attend, e.g. gay venues such as bars and saunas, HIV/AIDS agencies such as ACON, and STD clinics. While delivering a strong message about safe practices with regard to HIV/AIDS, the tone of the posters is positive and in keeping with ACON's education philosophy, which is pro-gay, pro-sex, non-judgemental about drug injection, and supportive of the gay community.
