Since the AIDS crisis of the late 80s, condoms have been urged as gospel for gay men to prevent the spread of HIV. But that’s all changing now with PrEP, the use of anti-HIV medication to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected.

Today we’re joined by two pioneers working to raise awareness for Prep: Damon L Jacobs , whose PrEP Facts has been acknowledged by the World Health Organization and Brandyn Gallagher whose group Outshine Northwest is raising awareness for trans men’s health.

  1. I hope people enjoyed the podcast, and keep up the conversations! Every FOF listener can be incremental in creating the change we want to see in the world. Let’s keep it going!

    I love gay men-who-sleep-with-men embracing the word ‘faggot’. It makes it harder for bigots to use it as a slur when we use it proudly as a self-identifier.

    Hilary and HRC are both Washington establishment, so the alliance is not surprising. I stopped donating to HRC several years ago, because as an organization, they seem to have their heads up their asses. It’s really disappointing that Hilary broke the truce and went on the offensive. It makes either candidate weaker in the general, and liberals do not appreciate divisiveness the way that conservatives seem to.

    • Hi Nathan, – Thank you for listening! I also love taking back the terms that bigots use against us (which is a big reason why I’ve embraced the “Truvada Whore” leveraged against me).

      I don’t appreciate the divisiveness either. Unfortunately, I’m seeing a lot of folks who call themselves liberals engage in rigid all-or-nothing dichotomous positioning when it comes to supporting one candidate. I’d love to see that change.
