Call for Writers

We need your voice!

Hey, y’all. We lookin for more people from what we call the “priority community,” or the people most impacted by HIV/AIDS, the illness we are trying to prevent and slay stigma around.

We want to hear from:

  1. Queer Black folks
  2. Queer people of color
  3. Women (cis and trans)
  4. People with disabilities

Our blog focuses on sexual health with an emphasis on PrEP, and we are looking to expand. Topics include your PrEP journey, creative non-fiction about sexual health, doctor’s visits, learning about PrEP, talking to friends about sexual health, sexual stigma, or general themes around healthy sexuality. Think blog posts, essays, photo essays, story times, and alladat.

We’re expaaaaandiiiiing.
