[LOVE] How to Make the ACA T’Werk for You

Oh…You said you don’t have Healthcare?

A series of clever, funny, and informative GIFs about Obamacare/Afforable Care Act courtesy of the Young Gay Black Men's Initiative.

The ACA was designed to decrease the number of uninsured Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care. Remember this is about you what is going to keep you healthy and living longer. Always keep that in mind as you go through this process.

This is really a gift to yourself and should be treated as such.

Check them out. Gigglz and learnz.

[VIDEO] Marcus Makes the Decision to Start PrEP With His Doc

[Video courtesy of Project Inform]

"I know I'm supposed to use a condom every time. I've heard this like all my life. But if I'm honest, I don't always do it - whether it's him or me."

Marcus is just starting out on his own. His own apartment. Interested in music. Getting out on the dating circuit. Here, Marcus talks about not always using a condom and why PrEP may be right for him because he wonders if he can trust what the other guy says about his status.

Project Inform is a great resource for info on PrEP. Click here.
