⛓️FIRST TIME IN DRAG
Different from the Others (Anders als die Andern)
Believed to be the first pro-gay film in the world, “Anders Als die Andern” was released in 1919 during the Weimar Republic in Germany. It was co-written and co-funded by Magnus Hirschfeld, a German physician and sexologist, an outspoken advocate for sexual minorities and homosexual as well as transgender rights. The movie was produced as a response to the criminalisation of homosexuality. Eventually, the film succumbed to censorship laws and prints of the film were burnt by the Nazi regime as a “cleansing” effort in the “action against un-German spirit”.
In remembrance of the film and the queer culture of Berlin during the Weimar Republic, serve your first time in drag in an exquisite 1920’s/30s look.

the Fight Against HIV & AIDS has many brave heroes. In the medical field, scientists work tirelessly to develop an even better understanding of HIV and AIDS, how they affect the body and how to develop pre-exposure (PrEP) as well as post-exposure treatment (PEP). Activists are pushing back against stigmatism and continue to educate, understanding that to succeed in the fight against this disease, it must happen not only on a local, but a global level.
Executive: Serve it as a scientist and commemorate their efforts. Showcasing one of your commendable works is mandatory. Be it a book, a poster or flyers! Get inspired by the achievements of scientists who did groundbreaking work: Dr. Adeeba, Flossie Wong-Staal, Francoise Barré-Sinoussi, Dr. Mathilde Krim, Dr. Kamarulzaman or Luc Montagnier, to name a few. 🏆 5 Trophies: BQ,FQ,TRANSMEN,DRAG,BUTCH

⛓️BODY /SEX SIREN : Good boys always wear their rubbers!
Promoting safe sex through ad campaigns is a sensitive subject, especially for the LGBT+ community. When media started pro-condom promotion, many gay men felt that there was an unjust focus on gay sexuality, furtering stigmatism of homosexuality as something “unsafe” to begin with. On the other hand, some voices raise concern due to rising numbers of STD infections that were on a recess before PrEP was as widely accessible as it is today.
Whether you’re a good or a bad boy/girl or just an undercover lover- for this category, y’all gotta wear rubber!
