Our program at the KUIR FEST BOGOTÁ in November 2018
Open lecture, workshop and photographic exhibition November 17 to 30 at El Sanatorio. The Project Love Lazers is an information activist group that is working for knowledge and free access to PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), a new medical option for the prevention of HIV / AIDS in the form of a pill that we hope will be available to all of you very soon.

Some have long experience in the areas of prevention and information about drugs. Others also work as artists, djs and programmers. Their work network expands slowly and they are independent of any specific institution.

PrEP, a new medical option for HIV/AIDS prevention in the form of a pill, will hopefully be available for everyone here sometime soon.
