I’ll never forget the day when bar snacks were ruined for me. As I nibbled on peanuts at a dive bar in Manhattan’s West Village—often my dinner—a stranger walked past, stopped, and came back to me.
“Do you know how many people,” he whispered in my ear, “stick their hands in there after doing god knows what in the bathroom?”
All of that to say: Insert disgusting thing you’ve done in your life—you don’t need to worry about what’s in the vaccine.
And yet people not only worry, they invent baseless stories on anecdotes and still treat the COVID-19 pandemic like a bout of seasonal flu that won’t stop them from enjoying the hell out of beautiful Puerto Vallarta! That’s why RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Chad Michaels is hosting Let’s Have a Vaccine Kiki January 10 at 5 PM Pacific on YouTube and Facebook.
Speaking directly to the gay community’s fears and concerns over the vaccine will be Susan Little (MD, PI on the AstraZeneca and Janssen COVID-19 vaccine trials at UCSD), Jason Diaz (Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Integrated Science, Business, and Technology at La Salle University), and Martin Naradikian (Ph.D.). They’re ready, willing, and eager to educate people on COVID, the COVID-19 vaccine, and questions regarding HIV and how the vaccine might react.
Produced by Lukas V., the event—as so many things in the last year have been—was borne out of frustration that anyone with a social media account can call themselves an expert. Instead of engaging in more useless debates, Lukas decided to go straight to actual experts for real answers. Forget what you’ve heard—science is real!
