A community-led Creative Outreach Project tackling HIV Stigma and Shame
In Equal Parts is an outreach project developed and delivered alongside the show First Time.
It aims to educate everybody - regardless of HIV status - on modern HIV healthcare and prevention, destigmatise attitudes to the virus and empower people to understand their role in contributing to the UNAIDS goal of ending all new HIV transmissions by 2030.
To date, In Equal Parts has engaged over 5.5k people in creative workshops, talks, exhibitions, rapid HIV testing and fundraising parties - over 18k people have been engaged online.
And First Time and In Equal Parts have taken the Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) and Zero 2030 campaign messages to millions in broadcast, digital and print media.
We're not done yet - the Autumn 2020/Spring 2021 tour of First Time will be the vehicle for our most extensive project to date.

Meet Sue - sexual health nurse and lover of scented candles.
Sue is a no nonsense Northerner with a heart of gold and a well stocked lube cupboard.
She shot to fame when she was lovingly depicted in the show First Time - she's still waiting for the royalties though.
Now Sue likes to offer sexual health advice as well as warm-takes (like hot takes but kinder) to her 56 followers on Twitter, bringing a whole new meaning to the hash tag #ClapForCarers.
Get ready to get lubed up and loose-lipped with Sue!
After 17 years, Nathaniel finally gets to say thank you to a very special person.
