On Saturday 22nd February at the second annual White Night festival, YEAH launched Love MELBOURNE. The Love
Last Saturday night YEAH launched 'Love MELBOURNE' at White Night festival. Our hard to miss letters attracted a huge crowd, and before we knew it, the Kevron key tags had disappeared and our sculpture was gleaming in colourful messages. An amazing team of volunteers helped out across the night, and our friend and volunteer extraordinaire Liam Allen was one of this awesome crew. Here is his blog from the night!
Welcome to our new blog! Every Thursday we'll be bringing you a wrap-up of the week's sexual health news (and other researchy stuff) from around Australia and the world.This is a blog for those of you with a keen interest in, or curiosity about, sex and sexual health. Whether it's the science or the social side of sexuality that you're into, you'll usually find something in the list to take your fancy.
