Monkeypox and the Trans Community TransLash Podcast with Imara Jones

    • Society & Culture

As the United States struggles to contain the outbreak of Monkeypox, trans people are once again sidelined in our public health response. Amidst this sea of misinformation and erasure, Imara talks with two experts about the disease’s spread and its impacts on our community. First, she sits down with physician and researcher Dr. Asa Radix to discuss Monkeypox’s origins, symptoms, treatment options, and why the medical system has been so slow to respond. Next, Imara has an eye-opening conversation with statistician-epidemiologist Dr. Elle Lett about the disproportionate impact on Black trans people, the flaws in the public health response, and the stigma of a new “gay disease.”
