Thrive Alabama's hilarious new public service announcement is a World Wrestling-style smackdown that pits PrEP and prevention against HIV and stigma.
"I'm proud to be one of the many people living with HIV helping to promote the fact that undetectable truly means untransmittable," Kevin Maloney writes.
"I will try to explain with humility and respect the reason why it hurts us to deny the truth and not support the science that says that undetectable = untransmittable," Maria Mejia writes.
JD Davids explains that PrEP helped him grow into his understanding and embodiment of gender, desire and identity, as well as being highly effective HIV prevention -- but now his "season of risk" has changed.
The singer is helping my queer friends of color and me talk about being "messy" -- and let go of our shame so we can love ourselves more.
"What it means to live with HIV is forever changing because of you -- the pioneering people and partners who are committed to science over stigma," Bruce Richman writes.
PrEP remains deeply underutilized throughout much of the U.S. Online health care providers like PlushCare and NURX seek to change that.
Last fall, community activists voiced concerns over the roll out of studies on Descovy (TAF/FTC) as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) without adequately involving community advisors.
"As patients and advocates of others, I know that by educating ourselves and others we take the control back," Maria Mejia writes. "We have to be proactive with our health and fight."
Filmmaker Chris Tipton-King talks about the PrEP Project, his new web series that's funny, smart, well made and sexy as hell. It's so not-safe-for-work sexy that the videos were taken down from Facebook for their R-rated sensual scenes.
