Here's How Getting PrEP Online Can Help You Stay Protected

We can't hammer the point home enough that pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) saves lives. It's one of the most effective ways we have to mitigate and eventually stop HIV. Once you start taking PrEP every day, you can count yourself among those who are 99% protected from HIV infection.

Happy Pride! Here Are 4 Reasons to Start PrEP This Month

Pride Month is HERE, and many of us in the LGBTQ community are looking forward to (safely) getting back to the festivities after two years of COVID-19 precautions. While Pride is unequivocally a time of joy for our community, it's important to remember that COVID isn't the only thing to be aware of as you celebrate -- HIV remains a very real concern, particularly for queer and trans people of color.

STI Awareness Month: 5 Reasons to Get Tested

April is STI Awareness Month, and even though it's 2022, many people still find it embarrassing or shameful to talk about sexually-transmitted infections. This is especially true for LGBTQ people, who often face additional stigmas and challenges when it comes to receiving culturally-competent healthcare. But the fact is, getting tested for STIs on a regular basis is particularly important for members of the LGBTQ community: LGBTQ people are disproportionately affected by many STIs(opens in a new tab), including HIV/AIDS.

Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day: Women and HIV

The conversations medical providers, community leaders, and individuals have surrounding HIV and AIDS are often focused on men, and with good reason – men who have sex with men (MSM) are the most disproportionately at-risk group(opens in a new tab) for HIV infection, and the gay community has been uniquely affected by the AIDS epidemic that began in 1981. However, March 10th is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day(opens in a new tab), and it’s important to discuss the ways in which women of all walks of life can be at risk for HIV infection.

Branden D. 2007

Branden D. "This is a photo of a boy months from expiring in 2007, a viral load of 9, riddled with cancer. I'd gone to see Dr Lane at the behest of my parents. Other doctors had told me that if I wanted to live I must take medication that would lessen what little quality of life I had left. I told them that was the point -- to belay my suffering. I was told I was going to die in October and I couldn't bear to extend that deadline. Stacy asked me if I'd be willing to take the medication if she could make it so that it didn't make me feel sicker. She cared more about me than I did and somehow that made me accept the treatment. She had faith where I had solemn resignation. The following month my CD4 was 124 and the deep purple lesions had already started to disappear. It is now near 800 and eight years later I am now a man who is blessed to offer that compassion to others and I'm lucky to stand in her shadow. All the good I can do from now on will be the vicarious compassion of a woman I consider to be an angel on earth.
