The party is a tribute to New York’s 80s club scene, imagining what could have been had the HIV drug PrEP existed in the era
Frank Ocean is hosting the first Blonded clubnight, PrEP+. Named after the drug that prevents the transmission of HIV, the party opens in New York tonight (October 17).
“PrEP+ is the first in a series of nights; an ongoing safe space made to bring people together and dance. PrEP+ will welcome globally celebrated DJs. The night is named PrEP+ as an homage to what could have been of the 1980s’ NYC club scene if the drug PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) – which can be taken daily to prevent HIV/AIDs for those who are not infected but are at high risk – had been invented in that era.”
“Ticket links have been distributed and the venue will be announced to ticket-holders on the evening of the night. Club hours are 10pm-late.”
“House rules: No photos or videos are allowed. Consent is mandatory. Zero tolerance for racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism or any form or discrimination The dance floor is for dancing.”
