PINK NEWS - Nov 30 - Grindr has drawn criticism for pushing out a sponsored advertisement about the HIV-preventative drug Truvada dubbed "misleading" by HIV activists. The Grindr ad states that Truvada has been "linked to kidney failure, bone fractures, and even death, in extreme cases". Truvada, approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2004, was a pill long regarded as the goal of research when it came to stemming the global HIV epidemic. "We know that Truvada is very safe," said Matthew Hodson, executive director of HIV advocacy group aidsmap, "as well as being approved for PrEP it is a longtime mainstay of HIV treatment."
