Discussion: Future Virus

DNA

Last year, we saw some fringe folks blame the Ebola outbreak on the gays in various ways – too much funding/focus on LGBT issues and not enough on Ebola; Ebola is God’s Wrath; etc.

We’ve been through this before with HIV/AIDS, when an entire population was demonized because of a virus.

Ironically, it also caused the community to get serious, standing up for their own rights, and arguably eventually led to marriage equality.

So my question today – what could the next virus look like? And how would it impact the future LGBT community, if at all?
