Antiretroviral Sex: The transformation of safe sex?

  • Eternity Playhouse 39 Burton Street Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010 Australia (map)

This free, public lecture, given by Associate Professor Martin Holt of the UNSW Centre for Social Research in Health, will consider the radical shifts in HIV prevention associated with the use of HIV treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). These prevention strategies provide new ways to safely avoid HIV, but also pose challenges to the ways communities understand, and potentially practice, ‘safe sex’. As safe sex transforms to accommodate the new possibilities provided by ‘antiretroviral sex’, what are the effects on sexual and social relations, identities and HIV-related stigma?

Supported by Darlinghurst Theatre Company. 
Date: Wednesday 22nd February,  2pm-3pm
Location:  Eternity Playhouse, 39 Burton Street, Darlinghurst, NSW
