Join PrEPster and Yorkshire MESMAC for the Leeds launch of PrEP17.
In 2015, film maker Nicholas Feustel made a documentary film about the England PROUD PrEP trial. The documentary was shown at community events across the UK, and formed the focus for PrEPster's Pushing for PrEP community education events.
In January 2017, Nicholas returned to London to pick up what has happened to PrEP since the completion of the last film. PrEP17 explores the stories of over a dozen PrEP activists; current and former PrEP users; clinicians; and policy-makers. The 36 minute documentary film, commissioned by PrEPster, shines a light on how PrEP has become available to thousands of people, despite the failures of the health system.
Join PrEPster and Yorkshire MESMAC for the Leeds launch of PrEP17. The film will be followed by an interactive panel discussion facilitated by PrEPster's Will Nutland with a panel including:
Pat McCusker, Yorkshire MESMAC
Greg Owen, I Want PrEP Now
Dr. Mags Portman, Mortimer Market Centre
Chris Penn, Yorkshire MESMAC Volunteer & PrEP user
Come along and find out about: how people are accessing PrEP in England; when the new IMPACT PrEP trial will start; PrEP and if it might be something for you, or someone you know.
PrEPster acknowedges the generous support of Elton John AIDS Foundation.
The event is FREE - but please reserve an Eventbrite ticket to ensure a place.
