Today marks the first day of International Pride Month. It's a month that allows us to reflect on the strength, positivity and love that's key to the LGBT+ community.
We can also look forward. Pride should be a reminder that standing for LGBT+ rights is a constant task.
This year, we're asking: Are you PrEPared for Pride? PrEP is a pill you can take to protect you from HIV. It is extremely effective when taken correctly. PEP is a pill that can be taken to stop HIV infection after a potential exposure, if taken in the following 72 hours.
This Pride, we're encouraging our LGBT+ service users to start taking PrEP. Are you PrEPared for Pride?

🌈🏳️⚧️ International #PRIDE month begins on Thursday, 1 June 2023. Only two days to go!
This year, lets stand together as LGBTQ+ community members and allies for trans people. It's important, more now than ever, for trans folk to have their identities respected and defended.
