edThere is no factual evidence to support that gay people are particularly prone to getting monkey pox. Monkey pox is a rare, virus-caused disease that can be spread through the handling or consumption of infected animals or from contact with an infected person. It is believed that contact with rodents, such as squirrels, can lead to the risk of infection with the virus.
Anyone, regardless of sexuality, who has exposure to infected animals or people can contract monkey pox. Therefore, gay people are not more likely to get monkey pox than anyone else.
