Zachary Quinto has written a personal response regarding the backlash his Out Magazine comments on PrEP and HIV received. I don't see what the uproar is about—it's as if being cautious and measured and thoughtful is the new sin.

I find parts of this Truvada video infuriating, but not for the reasons the makers think. It's supposed to cover (albeit in the space of a couple of minutes) the concept that Truvada, the drug you should really know about by now (most gay men I encountered still hadn't heard of it as recently as a year ago), and its backlash.
The introductory paragraph above the video states that Truvada is being called a party drug , but I've only ever seen it called that by a couple of very vocal critics.
I actually think the bulk of the alleged backlash is imaginary.

When I moved to NYC 22 years ago, I came to work as an editorial assistant at St. Martin's Press. I worked for Gordon Van Gelder (who edited science fiction and pop culture books) and the late Linda O'Brien (who was a manager of the “grid,” the list of all the company's hundreds of titles). Linda was close to SMP's longtime gay-interest editor Michael Denneny, whose Stonewall Inn Editions imprint published many of the most popular and respected gay books of the '70s and '80s, so I was able to speak with him and even attended a party at his apartment. (As a young gay guy, I will never forget that he proudly had a picture of porn actor Steve Fox on his fridge.)
Michael was someone we looked up to as a pioneer and as a cerebral man whose taste was both literary and commercial. He had to fight to publish books he knew would sell a few thousand copies, and would balance that with books he knew would sell many times that—yet he usually had to fight to publish those as well.
I was so disappointed when, while still working at SMP, my gay novel Boy Culture was not deemed fit to be a part of Stonewall Inn (not by Michael). I still own a lot of the free books that came from Michael's office, a den of literacy and iniquity, not to mention my Divine paper doll book that he published.
Denneny just granted the Lambda Literary Review a long interview. In it, he talks about the state of gay writing today by noting its past:
“[T]he assimilationist wave has been dominant for the last decade, balancing the first decade (the ’70s) dominated by the liberationists–the middle two decades essentially devoted to the fight against AIDS. I suspect these two poles of the culture will always be with us. Which is the right strategy depends on the historical moment. We’ll see what emerges.”

This is a real thing: Glen Hanson, the talented illustrator and artist, has designed a Liza Minnelli holiday ornament that fights HIV. Not literally, but if you buy it, the $ goes to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
This is the latest in a series of Broadway Legends, the others being Julie Andrews, Carol Channing, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera and Gwen Verdon.
“I’m simply delighted and so honored to be immortalized with such a wonderfully crafted ornament. I'm especially proud to help support Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, an organization that has been very dear to my heart for more than two decades.”
I had a nightmare I found Liza hanging from my Christmas tree once, so this brings things full circle with a happy ending!
