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.
Launched in 2015, Love Lazers currently consists of eight activists in Berlin, Zürich, Bogotá and Leipzig, focusing on working in nightlife and Internet spaces. Some of the members of the group are in homosexual and discordant relationships (HIV + and -) and have been educated in the fields of art, sociology, medicine and law. 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.

If you feel an unpleasant pain while fucking, you can apply some lube which will ease the pain – much more efficiently than spit would. Continue reading Better Sliding (with lube recipe!)

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

People who are HIV-positive are not infectious if their treatment is effective.
How safe is treatment as prevention? Does it count as safer sex? Is it more fun? How does this form of prevention work in committed relationships? Does it also work for people who are dating multiple people or during darkroom encounters? What should we do if we are super horny, high, or in love?

Forgot the rubber? Worried about the last date‘s HIV status after having barebacked together? In doubt about the effectiveness of a steady HIV-positive sex partner‘s treatment and whether they really lie ‘below detection level’?
