Doctors aren’t offering young people PrEP. That has to change

  As a young person who identifies as nonbinary — meaning I do not identify within the gender binary — accessing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) was a challenging quest.

It offers her scant synonyms for describing what, exactly, she’s checking off on her color-coded poster boards when making an album: “I’m always embarrassed to say, but emotions.” She giggles, the winsome sound of the greatest pop song not yet written.
