We should NOT stigmatize people who choose to utilize #PrEP


Justin B Terry-Smith's explains in his HIV advice column Just*in Time in A&U: America's AIDS Magazine​ why We should NOT stigmatize people who choose to utilize #PrEP.


Question:

Justin—
We have been friends (on Facebook) for a while and we met [as fellow members of] the leather community when you were Mr. Maryland Leather 2010. However, I would appreciate it if you keep my identity secret, seeing as how we are both well known in the leather community as well.
Well, I noticed that there is a spike in syphilis cases among gay men, especially in the leather community. Do you think that has anything to do with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)? My next question is about post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). In your opinion do you think that PEP gives people permission to have sex with others and then go get the pill the next morning?
