Published Research

BLTW experience PrEP stigma within the context of PrEP disclosure. This experience is underscored by existing experiences of HIV stigma connected to their identity as trans women. PrEP providers should prepare BLTW to use selective disclosure practices when revealing their PrEP use to help minimize experiences of PrEP stigma or potential physical harm. PrEP implementation programs should also support peer-to-peer PrEP education programs for transgender women to promote positive views of PrEP and help facilitate PrEP uptake in this population.
