Monkeypox Advisory For Pride Organizers
Communities in the global south have been impacted by monkeypox for many years. In most cases, monkeypox is a mild infection that clears up on its own within two to four weeks after initial symptoms appear. The virus that causes monkeypox can be passed from person to person by close contact with lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets, and contaminated items like bedding. Click here for more info.
