Alejandro from The Pink Post in conversation with Falk from Love Lazers about PrEP and the possibility of taking it daily or on demand. Who is PrEP for? Where do fears of getting HIV come from, even though being undetectable is completely safe? What is the point of view of people with HIV throughout the discussion? Can I hide my immune status in gay cruising apps (if I am asked)? And what happens if there is no agreement on condom/PrEP use during sex? Continue reading Stigma in The Times of PrEP

The poetry show, which was shown in the cellar at the Tuntenhaushoffest July 2018 in Berlin, is printed here again.

Our program at the KUIR FEST BOGOTÁ in November 2018
Open lecture, workshop and photographic exhibition November 17 to 30 at El Sanatorio. The Project Love Lazers is an information activist group that is working for knowledge and free access to PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), a new medical option for the prevention of HIV / AIDS in the form of a pill that we hope will be available to all of you very soon.

Their work network expands slowly and they are independent of any specific institution.
