I am a 28 year old, HIV negative, gay man. With the advent of PrEP and confirmation of TasPs efficacy, HIV/STIs, sexual health and sex in general have returned to being an omnipresent conversation. As a member of one of the most affected communities, and as Mr LA Leather 2014, I write articles, hold PrEP/PEP/Prevention panels throughout the US and Europe, and am deeply involved in alleviating HIV & LGBTQ stigma and misconceptions. PrEP, PEP, TasP are biomedical HIV transmission prevention methods, that have become the turning point in this 30 year long epidemic. I have recently changed my career path to be able to commit myself 100% to the task at hand.
