SDGLN Poll: Readers weigh in on Truvada and pundits

SAN DIEGO – Readers of San Diego Gay & Lesbian News who took our poll weigh in on the use of Truvada as a preventive step in becoming infected with HIV. Some pundits have gone so far as saying the medicine’s effectiveness has prompted some people to stop using condoms.

Our poll question was: Is Truvada the new condom?

The results, which are not scientific, reveal that 88% of readers don’t believe those pundits and reject the idea that Truvada is the new condom. But 12% said they agree with the pundits.

The new SDGLN Poll question asks readers: Is the U.S. doing enough to fight homophobia around the world?
