Chapter Support Group Meeting

  • The Fireside Room at The Manhattan Beach Community Church 303 South Peck Avenue Manhattan Beach, CA, 90266 United States (map)

Join us for our regular monthly meeting welcoming the entire spectrum of the LGBTQ+ community, friends, families and allies for support and education.

PFLAG Regional Director Robert Petersen will start our meeting with an important education segment focused on PrEP

In this sex-positive and gender-affirming presentation, participants will learn about the latest tool available to prevent HIV, a pill that if used as prescribed, is ~99% effective in preventing HIV infection. The method is called pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP for short. Participants will learn what studies the FDA used to approve PrEP for HIV prevention, who might be considered a candidate for PrEP, how to talk to your doctor about PrEP, the “controversies” surrounding PrEP and the different programs available to access PrEP if your insurance doesn't cover it. 

ABOUT ROBERT:Robert Petersen is a PrEP user and advocate and delivers this presentation from his own perspective. The information and data used in this workshop is the same information and data Robert used to make the decision that PrEP was a smart and safe choice for him personally.
