A party that imagines what the ’80s club scene in New York would be like if pre-exposure prophylaxis had been invented in that era.

Frank Ocean is launching a queer party in New York City.

According to an Instagram post by Gayletter, who recently featured the singer on their cover, PrEP+ is a “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.”
