Monkeypox and Gay Stigmatization, UCLA Brings Indoor Masking Back Thanks to More COVID, Ryan Field Books

 Monkeypox and Gay Stigmatization 

I’ve already posted about Monkeypox and gay men a few times. And even though it’s been made clear that everyone can get Monkeypox and that it’s not a sexually transmitted disease, some are worried that gay men will become stigmatized all over again. 

The singling out has sparked fears that gay and bisexual men, who appear to account for the majority of Europe’s monkeypox cases so far, are once again in danger of being stigmatized as carriers of an exotic and frightening disease, just as they were during the AIDS crisis.

“It is important for us to respond to the current trends so that we can reduce the risk of infection without disruption to in-person learning and campus activities, including commencement celebrations,” officials said in a news release. “To stay ahead of the curve, our campus is taking several proactive measures.”

Here’s the link.  Just because you want COVID to be over doesn’t mean that COVID is over. People, be prudent.
