Curtis uses PrEP, a once-a-day pill regimen to help prevent him from getting HIV. It provides an extra layer of safety, so that he can worry less about his sexual health and worry more about school (he's in college) and the stage (he's playing Romeo in an upcoming production of "Romeo and Juliet").
