50+ LGBTQ Groups Call on Facebook and Instagram to Remove Harmful Ads Spreading Lies About Truvada and PrEP

(Towleroad) — 50 top LGBTQ organizations have called on Facebook and Instagram to remove harmful ads that are spreading misinformation about PrEP and specifically Truvada.

“Using Facebook’s and Instagram’s targeted advertising programs, various law firms are attempting to recruit gay and bisexual men who use Truvada PrEP as an HIV preventative to join a lawsuit, claiming that the drug has caused harmful side effects in this patient population, specifically bone density and kidney issues,” write the groups.

“By focusing on ‘Truvada’ and PrEP — rather than ‘Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate’ (or TDF) and HIV positive individuals who use it as an antiviral — the law firms’ advertisements are scaring away at-risk HIV negative people from the leading drug that blocks […]

Genea Sky, Stripper Who Fell Off 15-ft Pole, Never Wants to Dance Again

Published

on

Genea Sky — the exotic dancer who came crashing down from a 15-foot pole but kept twerking afterward — is taking a page out of the great George Michael ‘s song, “Careless Whisper,” ’cause she never wants to dance again.

Sources close to Genea tell TMZ … she’s telling friends she’s done being a stripper and doesn’t want to dance anymore, because her fall and the injuries she suffered have scared her to death.

We’re told she’s grateful for all her fellow strippers who’ve reached out with comforting messages and shared their own injury stories … it’s made Genea feel like she’s not alone.

Our sources say the painful experience has also inspired Sky to try to change the industry and improve exotic dancers’ lives … but she’s not sure how yet.

The interesting thing is … we’re told Genea’s received a ton of offers from strip clubs and been asked to appear in music vids ever since she unintentionally went viral, but she wants none of it.

Our sources say Genea’s focused on healing up right now after having surgery for a broken jaw … along with her other injuries.

It should be noted — she has made appearances in a couple popular music videos, including G-Eazy‘s “No Limit” remix … so maybe she can get back to that when she’s all better, even if her days on the pole are no more.

SAN FRANCISCO (Queerty) — The city of San Francisco will consider revoking a 1980s law that banned bathhouses in the city.

In the 1970s, bathhouses acted as magnets for gay men, both to meet other singles and to experience music, dancing and social time. That changed with the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, which prompted major cities like New York and San Francisco to shutter the popular gay bathing spots.

Laws required the removal of private rooms and video booths, as well as to have a “monitor” on-site to make sure nobody engaged in unsafe sexual practices.

Now the City by the Bay will consider removing those regulations entirely. “Our current regulations for adult sex venues were put in […]
