What is T-PrEP?
T-PrEP is a FREE opportunity to get educated about PrEP and HIV, specifically in reference to the Trans and Gender Diverse community.

Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is the use of antiretroviral medication to prevent acquiring HIV. PrEP involves taking a pill every day (called Truvada) so that a person who is HIV-negative can stay HIV-negative. The use of PrEP as a form of safe sex has expanded in the last few years in Australia.

This event is suitable for you if you:

– are a trans or gender diverse person who would like to learn more about PrEP
– are a healthcare worker or youth worker who works with trans and gender diverse people.

MC’d by the lovely Graeme Watson from OUTInPerth, this community education event will involve speakers and community leaders from a number of groups.

Following the presentation on PrEP by M Clinic, there will be small presentations by TransFolk of WA and Theย  YEP Project (Youth Educating Peers), and then a panel Q&A with speakers from each of these organisations, along with a speaker from Magenta.
