JOSLIN: Homophobia unacceptable in the face of growing monkeypox concerns

Opinion 7/30/2022, 10:00am

Since the current outbreak of monkeypox began in May, those in the LGBTQ community have been subject to hate for the outbreak, and it needs to stop.

Monkeypox is mostly spread through person-to-person contact, including during sexual contact. It can also spread through touching objects, especially if it is shared by two or more people, and also by contact with an animal that has been infected with monkeypox. Monkeypox is not a sexually transmitted disease, and it can be spread through other non-sexual means.
