Behind the Scenes with Casey Conway in Drama Down Under campaign
Take a look at the behind-the-scenes video of the 'Drama Downunder: Northern Territory' campaign shoot featuring former NRL player Casey Conway.
The Aboriginal and gay model is appearing in the sexual health campaign because he wants to use his public profile to raise awareness about issues affecting both the gay and Indigenous communities.
The campaign was developed by the Victorian AIDS Council (VAC) and the Northern Territory AIDS and Hepatitis Council (NTAHC).
Conway has said he only felt comfortable to come out publicly after his career with the Sydney Roosters NRL club was cut short due to injury.
"I guess I tried my hardest to hide it for as long as I could," he said.
The NT campaign is based on the Victorian AIDS Council's long-running ‘Drama Down Under’ advertisements, which encouraged people to get a sexual health test every season.
The executive director of the NT Aids and Hepatitis Council, Kim Gates, said with only two seasons in the territory – wet and dry – the region needed its own version of the campaign.
“I'm hoping to see Casey's face splashed everywhere across the territory,” she said.
