- If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
- If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.
PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.
- Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
- Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.
If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure Prophylaxis).
- PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
- You continue taking PEP for 28 days.
Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.
This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV
I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.

Center for Sex and Culture - 1349 Mission Street, SF
Considered by many to be one of the most important contemporary African artists of recent years, Wangechi Mutu is a Kenyan-born, New-York based artist known for her elaborate collaged works on pieces of Mylar and sculptures. Her work boldly explores the contradictions of female and cultural identity, race, colonialism, and sexual identity just to name a few.
Constructing collages using fragments from fashion and travel magazines, pornography, African art books, images drawn from science fiction as well as hand-drawn and painted elements, Mutu’s work is filled with provocative juxtapositions of the female body. With these collages, she draws the viewer into conversations about the eroticization of women’s body, particularly African women.
Mutu observers that, “Females carry the marks, language and nuance of their culture more than the male. Anything that is desired or despised is always placed in the female body.”

Amaryllis De Jesus Moleski exhibition at Betti Ono in Oakland
AMEN: A Collaborative Meditation For Survival
Featuring New Work by Amaryllis De Jesus Moleski + kholi
September 5- October 31, 2014
Bay Area people—you need to get to Oakland to see this gorgeous show. I was blown away and will be returning to take it in again.
Betti Ono gallery has been showing terrific art for four years. “Inspired by recurring souls – such as Betti Ono’s founding spirits: American funk-singer, Betty Davis, and Japanese artist/singer/writer, Yoko Ono – the exhibition is an open experiment with language and image, a speculative portraiture giving way to memory of a future yet made” says owner and curator, Anyka Barber.
I don’t know what’s been happening this last week, but I have now seen two references to sex and elephants in the past 2 days. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?
Picture #1: is from a graphic novel called Death by Neil Gaiman
Picture #2: is form a an old EROS Magazine from New York in the 1960s and is a poem by DH Lawrence.
What does it all mean?!
