Since it emerged as a major news story in 2014, the use of the HIV drug Truvada as PrEP (pre-exposure prophalaxis) for HIV prevention has been a topic of fierce debate within the LGBTQ community, especially among gay men. Those interested in the main contours of the discussion can look to this short documentary, produced by the AJ+ arm of Al Jazeera, which features a number of primary voices including gay author Dan Savage, #TruvadaWhore leader Adam Zeboski, and controversial AIDS Healthcare Foundation president, Michael Weinstein.
