Darlinghurst's excess supply of condoms repurposed as inflatable celebration of PrEP

"We're pretty sure most of them hadn't been used. Pretty sure."

 

City of Sydney has officially paid homage to the introduction of anti-HIV medication PrEP into the gay community by erecting an artwork made entirely of irrelevant condoms.

"We didn't want them to go to waste just sitting idly in people's top drawers", says Clover Moore. "So we channelled our inner drag-on-a-dime, and put together this flamboyant monstrosity. But it would appear that just like Miss Vangie, we failed to edit."

Rumour has it that the incredible people who marched in the original 1978 Mardi Gras protest have tried to claim the garish artwork as their own. But this is a stupid theory since surely they'd be deserving of something more permanent, and less shit.
