The recent AFA’s campaign on safe-sex message ha sutlized the use of graphic and visuals as their main focus. Likewise, Fridae.com’s Taking Risk poker card set uses the pictorial as its main attraction. Lets’s look beyond Singapore and check out what the Australian has to offer!
CONDOMAN is an approach to delivering safe-sex messages initiated by Queensland Association for Healthy Communities Inc and Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council. It takes the form of a comic with supernatural-themed narrative. The setting is based in Australia and the narrative revolved around the Aboriginal community. It naturalizes the topic of condoms and sex and as cliche as the main character can be, the Condoman breaks through the taboo of condoms packets and sexual orientation.
The comic was available for free at 2010 Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention. For more information on the organizations and the comic, click here.
