"At your age I already had two children,"; "Young people now want to build a career,"; "At the end, you can adopt a child,"; "After five years you will think differently [on the subject of marriage]"; "Now you give birth, then you will look for a better man,"; "If you love me, there is no problem"; “Do you not trust me?"; "Without a condom sex is hotter" [about the risk of not using a condom] - these are only a part of the tips and arguments often heard by young people. Such “pushes” create a press from expectations, and we change our behavior in the quest to fit into social roles as we think is expected of us. It turns out that the shame of wanting something different for themselves or not feeling ready for a step can push many men and women to hasty and ill-considered decisions. Sex without a condom is a dangerous game. We are responsible for our acts.
TUXIDO protect the free choice of young women and men by supporting family planning. This means that we strive to help young people be better informed and aware of the decisions they take. In addition, many young people do not know that AIDS does not exhaust the problems of sexual culture in the country. There are nearly twenty dangerous sexually transmitted infections in Bulgaria and worldwide: Hepatitis, Syphilis, Chancroid, Trichomoniasis, Human Papilloma Virus and genital warts, Gonorrhea, Chlamidia and others. Although Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Syphilis are well known, there is an opinion that they do not affect Bulgaria so seriously.
TUXIDO information corner continued during the week against AIDS. Hundreds of fun information brochures were distributed to young people, parents and interested people who want to better understand the risks of abortion, sexually transmitted infections and even infertility. With the collaboration of the Students Council at UniBIT and its Chairwomnan Stanislava Cholova, the team of TUXIDO and BMF managed to explain many students that most infections have no visible symptoms. Those infected often visit a doctor when the disease is at an advanced stage, and treatment is more difficult.
On December 1, 2017, 40 students and PhD students watched with TUXIDO and Bulgarian Youth Forum the movie "Everything Is Love" in the G8 Cultural Center. The fate of Rado-rebel from the Labor-Education School, and Albena - a good family girl - managed to skip the years from the premiere of the movie so far and touches the audience. The forced abortion of Albena seems absurd at first glance, but it does not really differ much from our reality in which many girls are forced to personally turn to termination of their pregnancy.
