Our friends Ken Like Barbie, David Dodd and ButtaFlySoul joined forces in Chicago last night to host an intriguing and engagingly raw conversation about a new program that encourages sexually active people to be more proactive about maintaining good sexual health in the prevention of HIV/AIDS. They introduced a new health initiative where men and women in sexual high-risk demographics participate titles Project RSP.
Project RSP! (Ready, Set, PrEP) is a Chicago-based initiative to educate our communities about PrEP. PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis, and is a new FDA-approved method of preventing HIV which involves taking a pill every day. This is good news for those who love the feeling of bareback (raw) sex but are exercising safer sex with condoms
or maybe less-concerned in committed relationships.
The discussion included a panel which included a health expert from one of America’s leading health organizations that had launched this new initiative as well as a patient who has successfully became a patient in the program. ButtaFlySoul challenged the packed-out audience to be accountable over their sexual health while Ken Like Barbie and David engaged the audience and additional health experts to further the discussion.
Two hours may seem like a long time to talk about a new sexual health initiative, but it was so engaging and filled with questions that a couple of audience members volunteered to be part of the study as other became transparent with their stories and questions about their sexual health. This was not an event to miss.
