"Can I Give You A Big Hug? No, Thanks” – Protecting Against Monkeypox

Update: 2022-07-221

Description

Monkeypox has the potential to infect anyone, regardless of age, gender or race; in cases where pregnant women are infected, the virus can even travel to the fetus. Scientific analysis of the virus is severely lacking, but we do know one thing: folks are not “more at risk” purely because of their gender, race, geographic location or even line of work. That said, there is one demographic being the most vocal and forthcoming about their experiences: gay and bisexual men.


This week, V chats with two healthcare professionals and TikTokers who personally experienced monkeypox. Doctor John and Nurse Brian are helping break the stigma by documenting their journeys and educating their followers on how to identify early signs of monkeypox, and the symptoms and care techniques you’ll need to know if you do contract the virus. We’ll also talk about the failures of local & national government policies to protect public health. Monkeypox is not a dirty secret -- we’re here to (literally) air the dirty laundry surrounding mainstream media bias in reporting on the virus and take you to the truth.



Follow Dr. John and Nurse Brian on TikTok at @thatgaydoctor and @pozrn.

Wait, five days of abdominal cramping? Uh.... people with a uterus deal with abdominal pain every month. I get that monkey pox is a thing and should be taken seriously, but, abdominal cramping is something that many of us with a uterus don't blink twice at.
