Monkeypox Stigma Reduction Online Workshop | 6 October 2022

Events, LGBTQI, IGLYO

 

IGLYO invites you to join us for an interactive dialogue on Monkeypox and the stigma that often comes with diseases capable of sexual transmission. Over the last few months, we have seen a dramatic rise in cases of Monkeypox in areas where Monkeypox has not historically been reported. One of the communities most affected by this is the gay, bisexual and MSM (men who have sex with men) community.

Sex workers and adult entertainers, particularly those identifying as LGBTQ+, are at the forefront of combatting Monkeypox. However, public health efforts have focused rather narrowly on the MSM community.

With this in mind, we are excited to announce our collaboration with the European Sex Workers Alliance (ESWA). We will explore the most up to date information on Monkeypox, we will hear from a representative of ESWA on the unique experience of sex workers, as well as trying to explore, unpack and break stigma often associated with public health emergencies like this one. 

The webinar will take place on Thursday 6 October 2022 at 13-14:30 CEST. Anyone can register through the button below:
