Protect Your Monster was originally created to further conversations about sexual health and HIV/STI education and prevention, inspired by the euphemisms that people often use to describe sex without directly referencing it. What started off as a few illustrations and comics has blossomed into an ever-growing collection of video shorts featuring wonderful Atlanta personalities and amazing talent! PYM serves as a platform to have ice-breaker conversations. Through Harry Monster and his crew of Monster friends, PYM introduces potentially challenging conversations in fun, easy-to-digest ways. PYM strives to recognize and highlight local Atlanta community members, centering their lived experiences and lifting up their voices in these conversations.
Working with so many wonderful people, who have shared their different perspectives and conversations with Harry Monster and the Protect Your Monster family, has provided us with a lot of content to share with y'all. We are so grateful to those who have seen the value in PYM and given us the gift of sharing their experiences; these gifts blossom into new content, furthering our mission to educate and dispel harmful myths/stigma. PYM has grown since its inception, now including conversations about anything regarding sex, sexuality and gender... so... EVERYTHING!
Protect Your Monster is in the process of becoming a Non-Profit, in hopes of making new content with new guests, more community involvement, and new puppets created to reflect more of the Gender Universe, because not all Monsters look the same!
We'd love to have you contribute to help us reach our goal of becoming a Non-Profit, and enjoying and sharing the content that speaks to you as we continue to grow our campaign.
