At “HIV in Dialogue” in the Rotes Rathaus, Berlin I will talk about PrEP and biopolitics, especially how pharmaceutical technology changes gay subjectivity and gay sex and can be part of the fight against stigmatisation and homophobia.

Friday, 30.8, 16.45 in the Festsaal.

Description of the panel

“PrEP: Perspectives and Perspectives”

Fr. 16:45 - 18:15 - Festsaal

The PrEP is currently literally on everyone’s lips. On the one hand, because more and more people are taking the PrEP in Berlin or Germany, on the other hand, because the PrEP will be available from September as a cash benefit. Reason enough for us to deal with the interim analyses of the PrEP500 (Christoph Weber) in this event and to discuss the state of affairs for the upcoming PrEP health insurance approval (Axel Baumgarten). In addition, we want to take a closer look at the discourses triggered by PrEP and thus dare to look at a more comprehensive presentation of the PrEP phenomenon.
