I heard a very unusual story recently about a guy I know personally who is on PrEP. He's been doing the PrEP regimen for a couple of years, he's always tested negative for HIV, he's perfectly healthy, and he was recently diagnosed with Kaposi's Sarcoma...KS...which is a rare form of cancer associated with AIDS. No one can explain why he got KS, especially since he's HIV negative. But this kind of KS been showing up in urban areas with gay men just recently. And not many people are talking about it. You can read more about KS here.
With that said, here's a story about a guy who's been on PrEP who recently tested HIV positive.
Health officials in Washington State say that a local man has contracted HIV while taking PrEP. It is believed he was infected with a rare strain of HIV that is resistant to both of the medications in Truvada.
Here's the rest. Be prudent, guys. I don't believe there will ever be anything that replaces safe sex and common sense when it comes to all STDs.
Hot Cop of Castro Found Guilty
Turns out the Hot Cop of Castro the gay presses were raving about a few years ago is a criminal now. I'll never forget the first time I read about this guy and how I wanted to gag.
Christopher Kohrs, also known as the “Hot Cop of Castro,” was found guilty Thursday of two felony counts of hit and run after plowing over two pedestrians in San Francisco’s North Beach in 2015, then fleeing the scene.
One of the things I despise most...and will never understand...is a hit and run. Despicable.
