The PrEP Diaries


Pre-Order The PrEP Diaries today (print or ebook)!

My new 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-sexual landscape not just for LGBTQ people but for everyone. With humor, naked honesty, and a bit of existential dread, the book compares growing up in the shadow of HIV/AIDS to the freedom, possibilities, and limitations of being sexually active after HIV is preventable with a pill.
