The team at Young Deadly Free has been busy creating new videos with communities across Australia. The videos aim to get our key messages out to young people and others in a fresh, engaging way.

Our new videos cover a range of topics crucial to promoting sexual health and well-being among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth in urban and regional areas.

These nine new videos have been informed by an expert advisory group who have met over the last year. Video topics include diverse relationships, gender, sexuality, young men being tested, pornography, respectful relationships, consent, stigma and shame and STIs can affect everyone.

We hope you enjoy watching and sharing the videos with your family, friends and work colleagues. If you wish to use Young Deadly Free resources please see our copyright page. Videos are available for download or USBs containing the videos can be sent to your community, please contact us at
