Letter From The CEO: DoxyPEP at MAL - Nasty Pig

Letter From The CEO: DoxyPEP at MAL

This past weekend, me and my team went to Washington DC to hold the Nasty Pig Pep Rally, a public health pop-up activation that took place at the host hotel for Mid Atlantic Leather. We partnered with DC Health to set up an on-site clinic where attendees could speak with medical professionals to learn about DoxyPEP, an effective tool being approved by the CDC to drastically reduce the spread of STIs. Those who were interested and eligible to take this medication received a free short term supply of doxycycline for the weekend, neatly packaged in a custom black-on-black Nasty Pig box 🐷😊

I am thrilled to report that tons of people came through our activation to get the information they needed in a safe, stigma-free environment and to make informed decisions about their sexual health. Hundreds of MAL attendees got their DoxyPEP for free, and the response was so huge that DC Health called in more volunteers for Day 2 to keep up with demand.

At a time when there is so much misinformation in the world, I am more committed than ever to use my platform to speak on things over which I have some authority. I’m not a scientist nor am I a doctor, but I do have thirty years experience as a sex positive gay man. As someone who lived through the AIDS crisis and the Mpox outbreak, I know first hand that we need to educate each other about our sexual health, implement harm reduction strategies to keep each other safe, and advocate for access to scientifically-backed preventative care, like DoxyPEP.

Check out the video above to see what went down. Thanks to DC Health and Centaurs MC for making the Nasty Pig PEP Rally such an overwhelming success, and thanks to all the Nasty Pigs who came through and took advantage of us 😉

Yours In Sodomy,
