Prevention Revolution or Magical Thinking? A robust public debate is under way about the potential use of anti-HIV drugs to prevent HIV infection (also known as pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP). Doors open at 6pm, taping begins at 7pm. Free and open to the public with RSVP. Hoover-Leppen Theatre.
Speakers at this forum will include Keith Green, Director of Federal Affairs for AIDS Foundation of Chicago, founding member of the Chicago Black Gay Men's Caucus and former director of Project PrEPare. Keith will be joined by Bob Grant, Principal Investigator from the iPrEx trial, Nick Literski, a PrEP user from Seattle, and Rico Herrera, a Chicago PrEP user.
LifeLube, Association of Latin Men for Action, Chicago Black Gay Men's Caucus, Communities of Color Collaborative, Project CRYSP, and Feast of Fun are teeming up to present this free forum.
To help foster and nurture a community conversation in Chicago about gay men's health, Project CRYSP holds four free community forums each year. Placing gay men's health in a broad, holistic framework that goes beyond HIV and a limited "navel to knee" approach, the project's focus includes physical, mental and spiritual health as well as sexual health and wellness.
The forums feature local and national experts and are often hosted by the Chicago-based Feast of Fun - winners of the 2006, 2007 and 2008 People's Choice Award for Best GLBT Podcast.
