Posted on 06/10/2017 1:26:33 PM PDT by BenLurkin
As night falls on West Hollywood the LA County Department of Public Health is shedding light on the unusual spread of meningitis among gay men.
Darren Bitonio says he recently got vaccinated for the rare disease that can cause brain damage or even death. And it can be spread by saliva.
I am a guy. Just for extra protection, he told KCAL 9s Jeff Nguyen.
Since last year LA County has had 29 cases of meningitis 10 involve gay men.
The Department of Public Health believes only about a third of the community has been vaccinated.
The hope is that more gay people will learn about the uptick in the disease during LA Pride.
During the march streets will be closed between Hollywood and Highland and West Hollywood Park.
Until then, one group changed the street lights to spread a message of inclusion during Pride.
No matter who you are. No matter what you believe, you should walk proud, says Jana Pinkosky.
Activism is also the goal of a van spreading awareness of protecting yourself against HIV.
But Biotonio says the LGBTQ community shouldnt stop there.
Thats the main topic, its HIV, but [people] never bring up meningitis, he says.

I really don't care if every one of you die of some horrible disease or a bunch of horrible diseases.
Just quit trying to elevate your damned perversions to any level of acceptance.
Get out of my sight, go back in the closet.
The connection? Simple. Guys get meningitis, gals get womeningitis.
:throws wet tea leaves at Cboldt:
Why should officials be worried? They know what they’re doing, the risks they’re taking. If they don’t care, why should anyone else?
Change the color of the street lights, but don’t ask a protected-minority group to stop doing what leads to disease.
All those Butt Wrangler body fluids being exchanged.
(The median age at death for white American men having sex with men is 47. For blacks, it’s approximately 44.)
I can’t work up any sympathy for the homos.
To paraphrase a classic old tv commercial, “It’s not nice to f*ck with Mother Nature.”
Or, as Baretta would say, “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”
Why? Gays are wholesome disease free healthy people.
Homosexuals=STD amplification lifestyle.
Is some group planning to hose the country with Meningitis on Pride Weekend?
If I were a cop at that parade of perverts, I’d wear a full-body protective suit.
STD rates for young male fags have been off the charts last few years.
More than meningitis. The list of physical pathologies is rather long.
But it would be hateful to list them.
No need for vaccination. Just don’t go around kissing faggots.
A lot of libertarians will say that they don’t care what queers do as long as they are left alone.
Well, we pay for this behavior with vast quantities of tax money.
Murder rates 20 TIMES higher than normal.
Suicide rates 20-30 TIMES higher than normal.
Domestic violence rates 20-30 TIMES higher than normal. Serious communicable disease rates 20-30 TIMES higher than normal.
I am not interested in being tolerant any longer.
How can you protect yourself from HIV and everything else when you keeping diving into the very thing that causes it?
Only someone mentally ill would think like that. These people are so damn nauseating it sickens me. It seems like every week or two there’s another story about diseases they’re bringing back that were eradicated here or are mutating because of their very behavior.
