Your courage and integrity writing this article are an inspiration for all of us, especially those who have been working in the HIV field for the past two decades. Whether we like it or not, new infection rates in the U.S. have not declined for the past decade. The all-or-nothing approach to condom use has failed a great part of our community, and the issues raised in this piece are necessary components of having compassionate and responsible discussions. I hope readers will also consider that “PrEP” might be satisfying option for those how don’t or can’t use condoms consistently. Thank you Kyle for your strength, even in the midst of negative critical feedback.
