Resource Summary: Monkeypox, a rare pox virus typically carried by rodents in Central and Western Africa, has been making international headlines recently because of unusual outbreaks in Europe, North America, Israel, and Australia. Media coverage of this outbreak has tied the majority of cases to gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). This reporting has caused concern among the LGBTQIA+ community. This page provides information about Monkeypox symptoms, how it’s spread, and when to seek medical care.
