How has social distancing changed sexual practices amongst gay and bisexual men? What does safe sex look like in 2020? Do you still need to take PrEP (an HIV prevention medication) if you’re not having physical sex? Can you still access PrEP and HIV testing? How do you have a pleasurable sex life, stay safe from COVID-19, and prevent HIV?
Join us for a panel lunch and learn, where we explore sex and HIV in the era of COVID-19.
Learn more about HIV prevention strategies – undetectable viral load, PrEP, condoms, and testing. Hear about changes to sexual practices and PrEP usage since social distancing measures began. Explore different ways to navigate sex, pleasure, and intimacy in a harm reduction framework.
