Timing of S.F.’s kink festival Dore Alley sparks worry amid monkeypox emergency
The annual Up Your Alley leather and fetish fair is expected to go on this weekend in San Francisco's SoMa area, despite widespread concerns about the spread of monkeypox and the city's decision to declare a statement of emergency. San Francisco...
So cancel it. Can’t complain about the government not doing enough if the community itself isn’t taking the threat seriously or taking actions.
Why isn’t it canceled? It will spread at this event. My doctor said they have seen two cases come in within the last week. I know it’s a bummer to cancel things but it’s time to start taking this seriously as a group.
I'm surprised they made the decision to not cancel, especially because MSM have been a high risk population for monkeypox.
If you listen to Scott Wiener and the SF AIDS Foundation, it's safe to go, just put a bandaid on your monkeypox sores:
See a bump on your skin and worried that it might be monkeypox? If you’re not sure, and you still want to go out tonight, cover it up with a bandaid or clothing before you go out.
For real though, that is not at all reassuring it won't be a superspreader event.
It never ceases to amaze me how guys just can't keep it in their pants when any opportunity 'arouses'... commence eye roll...
