Truvada, HIV Prevention Drug, Divides The Gay Community (VIDEO)

Truvada, a new drug which is said to "knock out the HIV virus before it can establish itself in the body" and is reportedly able to provide a roughly equivalent rate of protection to that of a condom, has made its way onto pharmacy shelves.

But whether or not the "miracle drug" (which is also known as Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Indication or PrEP) encourages risky behavior, particularly among the gay male community, has been a matter of intense debate.

Joining HuffPost Live to discuss the new drug is Carl Sandler, the founder and CEO of the MISTER dating app and a HuffPost Gay Voices blogger who penned "A Pill to Prevent HIV" this week.
