[I asked this in the hiv section but it might be more for the TV, movie section]

I'm probably not as well informed but I only heard about PrEP from one episode of How to Get Away with Murder in season 2.  The Asian guy gets HIV and Connor says he'll go on PrEP and it takes... a week or so before they could have sex again.

It's not like HIV is shown on TV shows a lot (it would be horrible if it shows that HIV is THAT prevalent) but how often is PrEP brought up?  I haven't watched Looking and I know it wasn't around during the US Queer as Folk.

I haven't seen PrEP at all in any gay themed movies, not that I've been watching a lot.

Needs more PrEP info dissemination. What movies or shows have had PrEP mentioned?

also heard it referenced to in the show quantico, they suggested the gay agent go on it since the agency covered it...

Quantico, I've only seen one ep and haven't paid much attention when I found out the gay agent isn't really gay. 

Was the fake gay agent the one referred to?  Or was this a new guy?

it comes up in a couple of episodes of "How to get away with murder" when one of the gay guys is HIV+ and the other isn't
