Multi-faceted artist Frank Ocean is launching a new queer club night in NYC.
The title for the party is PrEP+, which also stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis, "a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at very high risk of getting HIV to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day," according to the CDC.
The new party will feature globally recognized DJ and pay homage to “what could have been of the 1980s NYC club scene if the drug PrEP... had been invented in that era."
