- If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
- If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.
PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.
- Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
- Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.
If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure Prophylaxis).
- PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
- You continue taking PEP for 28 days.
Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.
This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV

talk about perspective. shit.
I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.
With six children, she still manages to visit these kinds of countries, traveling lightly, without much security, taking the same bumpy roads and dodgy planes and going through the same military checkpoints as I do when I report from conflict zones. There is no red carpet in Libya or Sudan. She still packs her own flashlights, notebooks, and waterproof gear. She made Blood and Honey with $13 million and a lot of humility. She approached it the way she does her job for UNHCR, like a student.
"When I go on a field mission, I get multiple briefings, including from the CFR [Council on Foreign Relations]," she said. "And I took a course on international law. So I did the same thing I did with missions. I studied."
For the film, she “read a lot of books about the war. I talked to a lot of people, I watched, I listened. I just wanted to tell the real story.” She repeated what she has said several times: “I wanted to be respectful of people.” If she did not know something, “I asked.” — Possessed By War by Janine di Giovanni in Newsweek, Dec 12, 2011 [x]
Dance Little Liar’ is easily the most underrated song to ever spill from Turner’s lips.
It’s dark, it’s delicious. It’s poetry set to the sinking of the Titanic, from the opening twang of the guitar to the frenetic explosion of drums during the solo. Alex’s breaths between syllables perfectly balances the chilling melody; he begins with hearsay and unravels his thoughts like a Chinese whisper. The guitars play catchup, the bass shadows the eerie mood and the organs mourn in the background: it’s both funereal and sugary, and there’s not a note or a letter of any of the lyrics that I’d change. It’s pure perfection."

#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)
