men that have had oral or anal sex with another man in a period of 3 months are automatically banned from blood donation in UK.
this type is made out of blood of 9 gay and bisexual men that could have been used to save lives.

through dating apps like tinder and grindr, we contacted up to 200 people to ask for their collaboration. finally, 8 gays and 1 bisexual man, were willing to donate their blood for the project.

an exclusive vinyl edition of the live concerts will be launched to raise funds for local lgbt group communities.

a playlist of the event on spotify allows everybody to enjoy the live performances while getting funds from the replays.

a mobile blood bank will be installed in Brighton during the days of the festival and attendants can donate blood anonimously. all the blood donations will be analysed with no bias against sexuality.

in the merchandise store, fans can purchase exclusive items of the festival including apparel, stickers, flags, vinyl, and more.
