Online Resources

Local agency that empowers, connects, educates, and advocates for our Memphis LGBTIQ+ community.

The HRC Foundation, in partnership with Whitman-Walker Health, released Safer Sex for Trans Bodies, a comprehensive sexual health guide for transgender and gender-expansive people and their partners. The guide is written by and for members of the transgender community and offers them a long-overdue resource on potentially life-saving and affirming practices, from respectful terminology and definitions to helpful practices for sexual health following transition-related care


PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis.  It is used in the HIV field to describe the use of anti-HIV medication by people who do not have HIV. The medication helps prevent you from becoming infected with HIV by interfering with the virus’s ability to replicate itself in your body if you become exposed to it. 

PrEP is not appropriate for everyone. It has some documented side effects, cannot be taken together with certain medications, requires pre-screening with labs (HIV screen and Hepatitis screen prior to initiation), as well as ongoing labs to screen for liver and kidney health.  If you are interested in learning more, or if you want to find out if you are a good candidate for PrEP, call and make an appointment with one of our providers.  The medication may be covered by your insurance plan, and financial assistance programs are available from the mediation manufacturer.
