This is a presentation for my Visual Advocacy class that proposes my plan for igniting change in my local community. I plan to visually attack the Kansas City young gay men who feel they aren't vulnerable to catching HIV and infect the knowledge about the importance of safe sex.

  • According to Wikipedia, HIV is a virus that causes AIDS
  • It is a condition in humans in which the immune system begins to fail, weakening the person's ability to fight infections and cancer.
  • Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk.

    The majority of HIV infections are acquired through unprotected sex, but can also be spread through sharing needles.
  • These are what the mature HIV blood cells look like
  • This is what a person dying of AIDs looks like.
  • This is what some of the symptoms of infections can look like when someone has HIV or AIDS
  • There is currently no vaccine or cure for HIV or AIDS, so its seriousness should not be taken lightly.
  • It is estimated that HIV infects about .6% of the world’s population.
  • From 1981 to 2006, AIDS killed more than 25 million people.
  • The estimated number of new cases of HIV is 42,000 each year.
  • HIV.com reports that in the United States, it is believed that over 900,000 Americans may be infected with HIV
  • and that over 600,000 reported cases of AIDS have been recorded since 1981.

    These numbers don’t include the people who have not yet been diagnosed.
  • According to kcmo.org, there are currently 4,900 males and 790 females living with HIV and around 160 people living with AIDs in Kansas City.
  • Sadly, these numbers are continuing to grow.
  • Gay men are more affected by HIV and AIDS than any other group of people.
  • In the USA, it is estimated that nearly 220,000 men who have sex with men were living with HIV/AIDS in 2006.
  • and nearly 5,000 had died.
  • The number of new infections is going up about 1.5% a year.
  • Even more dramatically,
  • Even more dramatically,
  • The number of young homosexual men being newly diagnosed with HIV is rising by 12 percent a year.
  • 18-24 Year old gay men living in Kansas City...
  • ...will be my Target Audience
  • Despite the continuing impact of HIV & AIDS, awareness is decreasing among these young gay men.
  • This is because guys like these two underestimate how likely they are to be exposed to sexually transmitted diseases including HIV.
  • Like most human beings, gays have the tendency to feel invincible and convince themselves that bad things won't happen to them.
  • The truth is, all of these guys are at risk of being lied to, taken advantage of and exposed to the HIV virus.
  • Unfortunately, the internet, drugs, alcohol, and hormones can influence gays to partake in unprotected anal sex without considering the risk of HIV.
  • You are probably wondering why past efforts to fix this problem have failed?
  • Plenty of information is readily available online and at clinics and hospitals for the gay population to access any time they choose to, but that isn't the problem.
  • Despite the thousands of fliers, pamphlets, posters, billboards, etc. containing knowledge about...
  • HIV, AIDS, prevention, transmission, symptoms and testing information,
  • many of these tools go unused and unnoticed because they are outdated as far as means of effective communication is concerned.
  • I believe that in order to successfully infect knowledge, it needs to be given when people aren’t looking for it.

    I think I can make an impact on the gay community in Kansas City by visually attacking the issues of HIV education, awareness and prevention with new materials.
  • I want to use innovative design, information, and technology to wake up my peers and make them realize they aren’t invincible to the threats of HIV.
  • My ideas include innovative methods of delivering important knowledge and information, such as through typographic installations/projections.
  • I want to send realistic messages in settings and situations in which young gay men usually find it more difficult to maintain safer sexual behavior.
  • This can involve developing materials (such as condom packages) and information especially for distribution in gay clubs, bars and gay pride events.
  • Or maybe an eye opening and educational website
  • that sends a message similar to this one.
  • I would also like to work with local HIV awareness organizations and activists who can help me distribute and carry out my ideas.
