Second side of this idea - gay promotion

there is another one featuring a man and a woman, does it mean that's a straight promotion???

why not two female?

one should not take life so seriously - as one will not come out of it alive.

Lesbian or bisexual women are not at "high risk" of becoming infected with HIV through woman to woman sex.

I hardly ever comment on these things, but your comment is incredibly ignorant. Gay promotion? Because showing two guy together is a conscious promotion of homosexuality? I see you making no comment to the fact that there are white hands mixed in with the dark skinned hands so it's good to see that you think interracial relationships are ok. You also make no comment on the hand with the wedding band so I take it that adultery is ok in your book as well. But two guys, heaven forbid! And as already responded, clearly all of the other campaigns the world over that show a guy and girl are straight promotion and must be ok in your book.

I'm assuming a lot about you based on your comment, but how about you take your head out of where it may be and step into 2009. I highly doubt the brief said "Hey, we want to promote safe sex... and the gays."

maybe... it should have more options too... like girl-girl... because 2 pieces about just men is kinda sticking to the concept that aids is a gay disease...

Rather say "... their past" and NOT "... his past"

Otherwise. very good

Very good. The stark, crisp imagery makes a strong impact that easily translates the message.
