Project RSP

Project RSP Project RSP! (Ready, Set, PrEP) is a Chicago-based initiative to educate our communities about PrEP for HIV prevention. #PrEP4love is our sister :)
(13)

We provide a platform for the voices of those who have chosen to use PrEP to prevent HIV infection, and to share accurate PrEP information to current users and potential users as well as healthcare providers and other allies. This work is led by AIDS Foundation Chicago.

Mission: To promote awareness of, and access to, PrEP for HIV prevention - particularly among communities most vulnerable to HIV infection.

PrEP4Love. One Pill. Once a Day. Protect Against HIV.

When you take PrEP, you are taking control of your sexual health, but you aren’t in it alone. PrEP is more than just a daily prescription pill; it’s a partnership with your health care provider, who is a judgment-free champion for your health. #spreadtingle #prep4love

Chicago teens! We are one of only three cities in the whole country to offer this amazing PrEP study!

The CORE Center is looking for sexually-active (very broadly defined) young gay men or transgender women under the age of 18. This is an open-label study, so all participants are given access to what we now know is a highly effective HIV prevention product. Participants will be followed for about 18 months.

Naomi Campbell: ‘It’s time to reset’

“As the Black Lives Matter movement continues to create change, there is also a touch of cynicism about the now-vocal voices that were silent when Naomi decried a lack of industry diversity before it was deemed “in” to do so. “I’m sticking to the people that I’ve spoken to before,” she scoffs. “I’m not trying to jump on any new bandwagon. So, now we’re allowed to speak up? We weren’t allowed to before – who’s given the permission? I’ve given myself the permission – if I feel a certain way and I’m in a situation that I don’t think is right, I’m gonna speak it.”

#goodenough

What does it take to be more than GOOD ENOUGH? A series of scandalous shenanigans are revealed at Sunday supper when a tight-knit group of black and brown queer friends are forced to love themselves, flaws in all. Peel back the curtain and learn how Mae, Curtis, and Thyme accept a world that is more than GOOD ENOUGH — ALL sessions are now up on OTV ahead of the premiere this Saturday, August 8 at 8pm CST and star the full cast falling in and out or reality.
-
Attempting to hold their family together, the YGQ learns how to love and accept themselves as they navigate secret hook-ups, mental-crises and a series of scandalous shenanigans. But as the tight-knit clique attempts to heal from previous traumas they must collectively face the consequences that come from messy decisions — all while striving to be GOOD ENOUGH.
-
Watch all four GOOD ENOUGH SESSIONS at watch.weareo.tv before this Saturday to get ALLLLLL the tea on this cast.
