Let’s stop HIV in New York City
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.
 
Daily PrEP
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.
 
Emergency PEP
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

I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.

19 #WhyIStayed tweets everyone needs to see

While many cheered the NFL’s move to (finally) punish Rice’s vicious behavior, too many media outlets immediately fell into a tired pattern of victim blaming. 
Writer Beverly Gooden had heard enough. “I was watching the responses to the TMZ on my timeline, and I noticed a trend. People were asking ‘why did she marry him?’ and ‘why didn’t she leave him,’” Gooden told Mic. “When I saw those tweets, my first reaction was shame. The same shame that I felt back when I was in a violent marriage. It’s a sort of guilt that would make me crawl into a shell and remain silent. But today, for a reason I can’t explain, I’d had enough. I knew I had an answer to everyone’s question of why victims of violence stay. I can’t speak for Janay Rice, I can only speak for me.”
Gooden decided to change the conversation. | Follow micdotcom

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!

Today is the first day of National Suicide Prevention Week.
As someone who has survived numerous suicide attempts, I implore you to educate, advocate, speak up and reach out.
A simple “are you okay” can save someone’s life.
It saved mine :)
