Telling tales and talking-through

There has been a recent wave of films and television events, for a combined gay and heterosexual audience, in an emerging genre of “AIDS nostalgia”. I’m thinking of films like Dallas Buyers’ Club and television series like Angels in America and The Normal Heart.

So Why Are So Many Gay Men Opposed To PrEP?

"About nine months ago, the GUM clinic I regularly attend (the Working Men’s Project at St Mary’s in Paddington) offered me the chance to be part of the PROUD study, which examines the impact on gay men of using Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), and I jumped at the chance, not only because I wanted to do my bit for the community, but because it offered me an extra level of protection against HIV, regardless of whether I was using condoms or not."

Intimacy a strong motivator for PrEP HIV prevention

Many HIV-negative gay or bisexual men in steady relationships with other HIV-negative men don't always use condoms out of a desire for intimacy. That same desire, according to a new study, makes such men more inclined to use antiretroviral medications to prevent getting HIV, a recommended practice known as PrEP.

Does PrEP = a new gay sexual revolution?

Even though many health professionals portray PrEP as being "just another tool" to curtail the HIV epidemic, the charged rhetoric used by those for or against it – terms such as "party drug" or "Truvada whore" – suggests otherwise. As noted by a New York Times headline, PrEP raises the dramatic possibility of a new "sexual revolution" for gay men. While the idea frightens and even outrages many people, some advocates (including an increasingly vocal new generation of gay activists) are explicitly embracing the idea of less fear and more sexual choice, if not outright freedom.

Dr Joseph Sonnabend: The WHO's unwise recommendation for gay men

Since we really have relatively very little information about PrEP, and almost none about its use on a population level such a broad recommendation by the WHO is absolutely inappropriate, so maybe faced with increasing HIV infections among gay men, the WHO is simply giving up and proposing an unproved intervention out of desperation.
