Welcome to Gadigal Land for Sydney WorldPride!
Let’s unite at the biggest pride celebration Australia has ever seen.
This WorldPride, whatever you do, do it safely and with love.
PROTECT WITH LOVE
In Australia, we’ve made great strides towards reducing rates of HIV and STIs. Today, HIV prevention is not a one size fits all.
Safe sex means consistent condom use, taking PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), having an undetectable viral load (U=U) or a combination.
Protect yourself and others this WorldPride.
Learn more about HIV and STI pevention.
PARTY WITH LOVE
Whether at home or at the club, party safe.
If in distress or need aid at venues or large events, seek out medical staff, security personnel, ACON Rovers and DanceWize NSW. They are there to help.
Partying at home or elsewhere and need some assistance? Call Triple Zero (000) for emergency services such as police and ambulance.
Learn more about how to reduce harm and getting support around alcohol and other drugs.
ASK WITH LOVE
When it comes to sex, consent is key.
Consent means making sure they are telling you “yes” – be that verbally or with affirmative body language – and that you keep checking-in.
Consent must be given freely, without pressure or threat, and can be withdrawn at any time.
Learn more about consent laws in NSW and Australia.
PEP WITH LOVE
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is a 4-week course of medication taken after a potential exposure to HIV to prevent infection.
If you think you have recently been exposed to HIV, you may need PEP. But you need to act fast – within 72 hours after exposure.
Learn more about PEP.
STAY HOME & vax WITH LOVE
We all want to enjoy the party, but when illness strikes us down – such as the flu or COVID-19 – it’s important we take care of ourselves and don’t put others at risk. Sometimes, the best way to show love is by staying home.
Check yourself for symptoms of mpox and if you feel unwell, have a rash or sores, avoid parties and crowds and seek medical advice.
FREE mpox vaccines are available to all eligible interstate and international visitors to Sydney during WorldPride.
Learn more about mpox, eligibility and book a free vaccination.
