The night is a reimagining of the 1980s club scene if PrEP had been invented.
PrEP+ is an "homage to what could have been of the 1980s' NYC club scene if the drug PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis)... had been invented in that era," Gayletter wrote on Instagram late Wednesday. (PrEP is a highly effective HIV prevention drug that, if taken daily, can drastically reduce the risks of HIV.)
Gayletter's post also states the following "house rules" for the club night: "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."
The party kicks off at 10 PM tonight and will feature "globally celebrated DJs" at a TBA location.
Frank Ocean recently opened up to i-D about how club music is inspiring his new music and creative journey.

This Thursday night a new party from @blonded called PrEP+ in NYC. 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 www.blonded.co
