SEXPO has changed. While it will always be about celebrating sexualities and pleasure in an all-inclusive taboo-free safe space, now it’s taking charge – a gold coin donation from the sale of every ticket - and investing it in Sexual Health Victoria and its programs assisting in education, contraception and maintaining good sexual health.
New event owner Kevin Mack from Australia Exhibitions Group said that SEXPO is offering a more inclusive and mainstream events platform that includes more professional advice on sexual education and consent.
“Since buying SEXPO in 2019, it has been our passion to deliver an 18+ event that welcomes everyone. We offer a safe space for people to explore all elements of pleasure. SEXPO is all about championing education, empowerment, and exploration,” Kevin said.
“We are thrilled to announce Sexual Health Victoria as our national charity. Our donation will further help Sexual Health Victoria with their ambition to improve sexual health and wellbeing for all.
“SEXPO will be donating to the charity from ticket sales. We believe providing qualified sexual health education is paramount.”
Dr Kathy McNamee, Medical Director Sexual Health Victoria said the event will provide a fantastic platform to directly reach more than 75,000 attendees.
“Through SEXPO we’re looking forward to reaching more than 75,000 attendees directly and provide information on consent, contraception and maintaining good sexual health, which is all core to what we do,” Dr McNamee said.
“The donation from SEXPO will support the important work we do in promoting and educating the community on sexual and reproductive health. It will support increased education in rural and low-socio economic areas, help build our LGBTQIA+ services and allow us to provide more health services. ”
Sexual Health Victoria has long been one of Australia’s leaders in educators and service providers of sexual and reproductive health.
The annual SEXPO event is a celebration, commemoration and shame-free exhibition that is a tribute to all thoughts, feelings, lifestyles and sexualities.
SEXPO has three events taking place across the nation in 2022, Brisbane - 22 to 24 July, Sydney - 28 to 30 October, Melbourne - 25 to 27 November.
