Written and performed by OBGYN and rapper, Dr. Every Woman, the CATCH DESIRE VISUAL EP uplifts the narratives and experiences of sexually liberated black women while also promoting the value of PReP.
P4L- “You are powerful, but so vulnerable. Control your sexual safety; thanks to modern technology. This song is intended to inform women that PrEP exists and that she can reclaim her sexual health faster than she can shout. Zapp!” — Dr. Every Woman (a.k.a. Dr. Wendy McDonald)
WATCH “PROTECT YOUR MAGIC“
Protect Your Magic- “There’s nothing wrong with options. This Salt-N-Peppa flow reminds us that HIV still is present in the community. She is empowered and in control of her choices and her health with PrEP as her in case condom's breaking" back up plan. — Dr. Every Woman (a.k.a. Dr. Wendy McDonald)
WATCH “ONE LITTLE PILL”
One Little Pill- “A public service announcement from the Gyne Minaj, this rap empowers women that she is in control over who she lets in. You can be dismissed if you don't care about your safety and mine. PrEP is your back up plan. “ — Dr. Every Woman (a.k.a. Dr. Wendy McDonald)
Love is contractible. Lust is transmittable. Touch is contagious. Catch feelings, not HIV.
PrEP is a once daily medication that can reduce your risk of getting HIV.
The CATCH DESIRE VISUAL EP is written and performed by Chicago-based OBGYN and rapper, Dr. Every Woman (aka Wendy Mcdonald), as well as appearances by local influencers, such as recording artist and model Syren, advocate and actor Damon Williams, choreographer and stylist Darling Shear, and dancers Melody and Melissa Koops.
The CATCH DESIRE EP features three original songs written and recorded by Dr. Every Woman. Each song aims to uplift the narratives and experiences of sexually liberated black women while also promoting the value of PReP through witty remakes of all-time-favorites Computer Love by Zapp, Shoop by Salt-N-Peppa and Anaconda by Nicki Minaj.
The visuals were produced by People Who Care, Inc. in collaboration with PrEP4Love and the Chicago Department of Public Health and directed by Elijah McKinnon, Ashley Battle and Demetrius Barry and filmed at Silent Funny. The project was funded by a grant from the Chicago Department of Public Health. Learn more about PrEP at www.prep4love.com.
"Where words leave off, music begins. As an OBGYN, I am a privileged to be an educator. I administer care, but also inform my patients about their current health status and how they can strive to be healthier. The Catch Desire EP and visuals for PrEP4Love is the coolest, freshest, most innovated project that I have EVER worked on.
PrEP is once a day pill that can prevent over 99% of HIV in all populations. Since African-American cisgender and transgender women fall in the population who can benefit from PrEP, I wanted to use my platform and knowledge to actively participate in the conversation. What better way to get that going than with a classic song or rap that is highly recognizable and packs an important message. Empowerment, confidence and freedom. That's the point.”
