‘We’ve got awareness of cancer and a bunch of different conditions which people are having quite a lot of attention on, but HIV is still something that’s affecting the world.

‘And it’s affecting it radically.’

That’s how Jason Domino sums up why his started Porn4PrEP, a UK-based group of porn stars pushing for PrEP and the de-stigmatization of those living with HIV – through porn.

For World AIDS Day, Gay Star News sat down with Domino, to talk about what made him start the initiative, and how far they have already come.

‘Inside the medical community the fact that we are porn actors means that sometimes, we are viewed as slightly less professional with our message,’ Domino told Gay Star News in an interview.

“But as soon as they see we are effective and well informed on up to date medical details, they come around.”

Domino is the mind behind Porn4PrEP, and he started it for a very personal reason: the first man he filmed a scene with was HIV positive.

‘After that, I went on PrEP and I sort of kept that to myself,’ he said.

‘While I was dealing with that, a number of my friends became HIV positive, and I realized just how important it was to tell people about this.’

So that’s what he did, becoming a PrEP advocate and doing something he says is quite rare for a HIV negative person: he set out to learn ‘the full modern viewpoint around HIV and what modern people living with HIV are dealing with.’
