My Body, My Health

Building a Generation Free of HIV & Stigma

There are approximately 1.2 million people living with HIV in the U.S. and communities of color have been hit the hardest. That’s why the Human Rights Campaign has joined Gilead Sciences to launch the coast to coast initiative “My Body, My Health,” to break through the barriers and systemic injustice affecting the sexual health of our Black and Latiné LGBTQ+ communities.

It's more important than ever, that LGBTQ people engaging in sex understand the importance of condom usage and prevention tools like PrEP and PEP, consent, and how to connect about sex.

Prioritize Your Sexual Health


Condoms, PrEP and PEP are preventive techniques that have proven extremely successful in preventing HIV.


Overall health and wellness include routine testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). There are many options for getting tested: a primary care doctor, at a community health clinic, or even with a self-test kit. Regular testing can help in the early detection of an infection, especially knowing that some do not experience symptoms with several STIs.

Treatment Options

Getting into treatment as soon as possible increases health outcomes for people living with HIV. Science around HIV has come a long way. Treatment options range from taking one pill daily to getting two injections (shots) every other month.


Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U). Simply put, if you’re undetectable, then you cannot transmit the virus. If we are to triumph over stigma, then we must choose facts over fear.

Get Sex Positive

Taking precautions against HIV doesn’t mean you should be ashamed of your sexuality or not enjoy sex - you can love your body and stay safe.

Through sex positivity, communities can celebrate the many ways people consensually discuss, engage and express their sexuality and pleasures. Through this lens, we can empower ourselves, prioritize our sexual health and help end misinformation and stigma.
