MISTR and Grindr hosted an event in support of the ACLU Drag Defense Fund with a God Save the Queens Pride Party yesterday at Hi Tops Bar, located at 8933 Santa Monica Blvd. Everyone must’ve gotten the Grindr notification to action because it was a packed house on Thursday night.
The blue Speedo clad MISTER boys were stationed at the entrance of the restaurant and bar, handing out free drinks tickets, free Grindr Unlimited downloads and MISTR and Grindr swag like clap fans, bags and a select few got hats. The event also had special guest from RuPaul’s Drag Race star Mayhem Miller.
MISTR offers free online access to pre exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), the once a day pill that is 99% effective at preventing HIV. It also offers free online PrEP and STI testing in 46 states, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Gay owned and operated, MISTR has brought together the best doctors, pharmacists, and problem solvers to make PrEP available to all who need it. No needles, no doctor’s office, no paperwork and free delivery.
Most insurance plans cover PrEP – if yours doesn’t, they can help you qualify for patient assistance programs so you have no out of pocket costs. They handle all the paperwork for you, so it’s hassle free.
The required PrEP labs and doctor consult are free, as are all your STI testing. No needles or need to waste your time at the doctors office, you can do everything at home. Already have a prescription for PrEP? They offer free delivery anywhere in the United States, and they make prescription renewals quick and effortless.
The Facts that PreP:
- PrEP is 99% effective at preventing HIV.
- Gay and bisexual men made up about 70% of the estimated 38,500 new HIV infections 2015. Yes, people still get HIV!
- In LA County, only 6,700 people are on PrEP, roughly 10% of the gay population in Los Angeles, and it’s even less in many other cities.
- Expanded use of PrEP, regular testing, and treatment means a world with ZERO new infections.
