The Nation Weekly: June 3, 2022

“We know from the AIDS epidemic that the gay community can effectively respond to infectious disease threats when they know the stakes,” writes Gregg Gonsalves, The Nation’s public health correspondent. “What I am suggesting is that all of our LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS organizations mount an educational and informational campaign right now.”

This week, Gonsalves provided an overview of the growing Monkeypox outbreak, particularly among gay men. This illness should not incite fearmongering within the community, he says, but rather keep it vigilant during Pride month.

550… and Counting
Monkeypox is not a gay disease. But it has arrived in our community—and our decades of experience dealing with HIV give us the chance to get things right from the outset.
