  • PrEP
    Does PrEP = a new gay sexual revolution?
    Bay Area Reporter | 26 July 2014

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.
