Music Artist Milan Christopher and Los Angeles LGBT Center Urge Those Most At-Risk to be ’PrEP’d

Music Artist Milan Christopher and Los Angeles LGBT Center Urge Those Most At-Risk to be ’PrEP’d | Health, HIV & Addiction Topics in the LGBT Community | Scoop.it

The Los Angeles LGBT Center, along with openly gay music artist, actor, and model Milan Christopher, are urging those most at-risk to be 'PrEP'd AF' against HIV. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), minority communities, especially African-American/Black men who have sex with men, are particularly at-risk for new HIV infections. PrEP'd AF, which builds on the success of last year's 'F*ck w/out Fear' HIV prevention campaign, continues to raise awareness for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a safe and effective once-daily medicine that has been proven to reduce the risk of HIV infection by up to 99 percent, if used as prescribed.2 Inspired by Milan's personal experience with PrEP, the PrEP'd AF campaign encourages the community to be as prepared as possible to protect themselves against HIV.
