Getting on PrEP | Anal About My Health

You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to get on PrEP! So let us do it for you!

In a very special episode of #AnalAboutMyHealth, Mama Celeste and Kochina Rude are taking on the PrEP obstacle course — going through all the steps from hooking up with a stranger to getting tested at a local clinic.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, also known as PrEP can prevent HIV with up to 99% efficacy if taken as directed. It is most commonly available as a pill, but newglobal clinical trials have showed the safety and efficacy of a long-acting injectable drug as well!

As always, we encourage you to talk with a professional medical provider to learn more about getting on PrEP, to learn your risk of HIV, and to get tested regularly!

MPact teamed up with St James Infirmary and TrishTV for our #AnalAboutMyHealth campaign featuring Bay Area drag performers discussing taboo topics with local and global experts in the field of sexual health and human rights. We’re breaking down stigma about harm reduction, drug use, sex work, living with HIV, and anal health – and who better to help than drag queens! Stay tuned for more content soon!

About Trish

Trish is a collective of drag performers and visual artists in the Bay Area founded in 2017 by Cash Monet & Mama Celeste. Trish’s goal is to expand the art of drag beyond the nightclub stage through video production, print publications, art installations and new media. Trish believes that drag can be a vehicle for social change as it provides a platform to not only entertain but engage conversations on gender, race, sexuality, self-expression, politics, culture and the many systems that oppress us.
