What exactly will sex between men look like after HIV is effectively contained or eradicated? How will it affect gay male culture? And is that the goal of safe sex education and advocating for the use of PrEP?
You have to ask yourself if you are truly committed to combatting stigma. If you aren't, if you want to wield stigma as a weapon to impose your point of view, then you are part of the problem. To stigmatize PrEP or the people who take it will only lead to more HIV infections.
The FDA has approved Truvada, an HIV treatment medication, to be taken by uninfected people to protect against HIV. For men who engage in unsafe sex with other men, is this just an excuse to continue to be irresponsible?
July 16, 2012 could be another major turning point in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Today the FDA approved a supplemental new drug application for the previously approved antiretroviral medication TDF-FTC, to reduce the risk of acquiring HIV by uninfected men and women.
