Order The PrEP Diaries today! My book explores dating, hooking up, and living with the advent of Truvada PrEP, a revolutionary HIV medication that blocks transmission of the virus. This treatment is changing the social and sexual landscape not just for queer people but for everyone. With humor, naked honesty, and a bit of existential dread, the book compares growing up in the shadow of the HIV/AIDS epidemic to the freedom, possibilities, and limitations of being sexually active after HIV transmission is preventable with a pill.
