PrEP has been a game-changer since its introduction in 2012. Although it has not been accessible for those who need it the most, particularly communities of color, it has certainly changed the way GBMSM relate sexually with each other. For this plenary, we will explore how PrEP has impacted sexual communication and behavior in an open and real conversation about sex. From academic and community perspectives, panelists will share their thoughts on the perceptions of risk, negotiation, and practices as they deepen into the liberating yet highly stigmatized aspects of PrEP. Panelists will also discuss the transmasculine experience and its impact on not only its users but also on those who are living with HIV.
