How San Francisco learned to stop worrying – and love super spreader events

In the wake of COVID, some blue cities implemented draconian restrictions and lockdowns, ostensibly in the name of public safety.

“Two weeks to flatten the curve” turned into months of government overreach with suspensions of personal freedom and small businesses getting crushed.

But now, San Francisco has learned to stop worrying and love super spreader events.

Monkeypox has been declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) .

But that isn’t going to stop San Francisco’s annual “Up Your Alley” gay fetish festival from going on as planned.

While officials eagerly shamed everyday Americans into limiting the size of gatherings during recent Thanksgivings, Christmases, New Years, and Easters past, public shaming is conspicuously absent now as festival organizers encourage attendees of every color of the rainbow to let their freak flags fly.

Directly from the Up Your Alley home page, “Head for the infamous corner of Folsom and Dore. Dive into San Francisco’s notorious, kinky, leather block party! Wear your gear, your leather, or your birthday suit; just come out and help keep SOMA [“South of Market,” a San Francisco neighborhood popular for gay leather bars] kinky and queer! Visit the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District booth. Bring proof of vaccination, and an open mind.”

To date, San Francisco has 257 cases of probable or confirmed monkeypox cases.

According to the World Health Organization, about 99% of cases are among men, and at least 95% of those patients are men who have sex with other men.

It would seem that directly inviting members of this community to show up “in your birthday suit” and with “an open mind” during what is deemed a “public health emergency” isn’t the best idea ever conceived.

“Douchie”, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF) cartoon mascot (yeah…)  shares ideas to remain safe, adding “you may choose to use one or two of these suggestions — or none at all.”

The voluntary safety measures provided include, “There’s never been a better time to dress from top to bottom in latex or leather. Keeping your skin covered is a sure-fire way to prevent exposures to monkeypox. It’s OK to be picky with your sex partners. Cover up your own bumps: See a bump on your skin and worried that it might be monkeypox? If you’re not sure, and you still want to go out tonight, cover it up with a bandaid or clothing before you go out.”

But curiously there is no public shaming to be seen anywhere.

Think twice before you invite cousin Eddie to Thanksgiving dinner at the same time Grandma is going to be there or be ready to be ostracized as being not uncaring of those around you.

But if you’re gay and jonesing for some leather fun in San Fran?

Maybe cover that weird bump with a band-aid before you head out….but only if you want to.

The monkeypox explosion started earlier this year at a gay leather fetish festival in Antwerp called Darklands and it’s easy to see how this event could become a super spreader.

But can we expect the same months-long moralizing and sanctimonious screeds from our corrupt Corporate media?

I wouldn’t hold my breath.
