The Persistence of HIV Fear in the Age of PrEP

"But if I have sex without a condom, something bad eventually has to happen." I can understand how this fear operates. The first year I used PrEP and had condomless sex with both HIV-positive, and HIV-negative-identified partners, I still carried that fear. My 40-year-old mind simply could not absorb that feeling good wouldn't result in a painful outcome.

How to Have Sex in a New Epidemic of STIs

I feel a need to raise an alarm regarding this spike in STI rates. Something is wrong when MSM account for 83% of reported cases of syphilis among men. But we can't blame this on PrEP.

Petition: Stop the persecution of people with HIV in the Czech Republic!

NO PERSON WITH HIV BELONGS IN PRISON FOR HAVING SEX. Anyone living with HIV with undetectable viral load while taking treatment will not transmit the virus. This nonsense must stop immediately; it is both a grave violation of the fundamental rights of these persons, and completely counterproductive in the struggle against HIV/AIDS.

Czech Republic: Prague Public Health Authority initiates criminal prosecutions of 30 gay men living with HIV following an STI diagnosis

Prague’s Public Health Authority initiated criminal investigations against 30 gay men living with HIV that had been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) during the previous year.
