There are still many questions that exist around PrEP, undetectable, and living with HIV and these videos address those questions in a concise and easy to understand fashion. While there have been a number of educational campaigns around various health issues gay men continue to have concerns about to prevent HIV or STI’s and what might be the real world impacts of an HIV diagnosis.
Ask A Pro is an ongoing series that will allow Hornet’s community of users to ask direct questions and receive answers that are accurate and useful.
