HRC wants health insurers to cover Truvada

Gilead, HRCThis weekend the largest U.S. gay-rights organization, HRC, endorsed efforts to promote the use of Truvada, a once-a-day pill to prevent HIV infection.  They are now calling on insurers to provide more generous coverage of the drug.

Truvada’s preventive use has been endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and many HIV/AIDS advocacy groups, but America’s puritanical tendencies alongside valid concerns that the drug might promote risky sexual behavior that won’t protect against other STDs has led to some doctors being reluctant to prescribe Truvada.

I welcome the HRC’s efforts in this area and hope their new policy paper which strongly supports the preventive use of Truvada and encourages health insurers to provide better insurance coverage will help increase awareness of the drug and make it more accessible to all.

A more provocative Orthodox Calendar 2015

homoerotic calendarThis year’s Orthodox Calendar is decidedly more provocative.  How do I know this? The calendar that features barely clad men with chiseled bodies arrived at my house while I was away on business.

OC maintains that their unconventional and bold images are used to counteract the negative influences of most of the Orthodox Church leadership and challenge notions of sexuality.  You can learn more about this group and purchase the 2015 calendar here.
