Condoman (and Lubelicious) are the main characters in a comic book series. The comics are an innovative sexual health education campaign primarily targeting indigenous Australian Communities, raising awareness around STIs and advocating for condom use and sexual health tests.
The following description is taken from the Queensland Association of Healthy Communities (QAHC) Condoman page;
“Condoman, one of Australia’s most iconic health messages in promoting the use of condoms, returns in a new and exciting design format in 2009. Condoman was originally conceived and developed in 1987 by a group of Indigenous Health Workers in Townsville. Although Condoman was specifically meant for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, his popularity over the years crossed over to the wider Australian population; and eventually to other countries in the South Pacific region.
The 2 Spirits Project with Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (QAHC) in partnership with the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC) have reinvigorated the character. It aims to introduce Condoman to a generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who are not familiar with the original campaign, and have not lived through the early years of HIV & AIDS in Australia, especially before the introduction of better treatments.”
