Who We Are

Love Lazers started in 2015 in the moment when a handful of people in Berlin, Bogota and Zurich had began a nightlife scene in which Electronic music was its day. These people are diverse; some had careers within medicine and law, some live in serodiscordant partnerships and some were schooled entirely by life. Since long, some are now working in the fields of Aids activism and drug politics.

We see our assignment in spreading information on forms of safer sex and drug use/consumption – and giving statements concerning stigmas and emancipation. All that is based on a collective self-organized and activist-led perspective. Trying to make the content accessible to everyone is therefore a matter of course. So find our info online and in our printed flyers available in six languages. We have published the first extended information about “Undetectable” and the use of PrEP in German and the discussion that started as a result has had a decisive influence of PrEP usage in countries which we are active. Recently we’ve contributed to the Berlin based exhibition “Hypermasculinity Poetry” and have published a condom update “The condom and its acid test durability”. Since 2018 there is now Love Lazers Columbia. A safer-use info on ´Slamming´ is coming soon…

We are well connected. As an independent initiative, we are neither an institution, connected to one, nor do we get public promotion, though.

If you want to participate, don’t hesitate to contact us at info@lovelazers.org

We collaborate with the project “701 anyway – HIV prevention today”, combining fashion design and new knowledge around Safer Sex. We work together with photographers from Chicago, Paris, Bogotá and Berlin and Düsseldorf.

WE ARE LAZERS!
WE ENLIGHTEN THE LOVE!

We’ve been asked many times already where our name comes from:

Love
is our theme and our theme is love because we get so much love on the way with our heavenly rides. Because love, love, love is making fun, much more fun than anything.
Lazers
are our bundled, coherent rays of light with long reach and energy. Lazers are precise. Lazers with a ´Z´ is far cooler than conventional ´Laser´ and it is very modern. Lazers colorfully illuminate the darkness with their sharp contours.

Jet with us in the light speed of love!
