Dr. Fauci Praises ‘Courageous’ Gays Facing ‘Extraordinary Stigma’ While Standing Next To Pence

Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the only few sources from the White House that can be trusted about the Coronavirus, took his time on Wednesday to praise the “incredible courage and dignity and strength and activism” LGBTQ people showed during the HIV epidemic in the face of “extraordinary stigma.”

His comments were made while standing right next to Vice President Mike Pence, who is known for spreading anti-gay stigma.

Fauci’s comments came while discussing how coronavirus will affect certain disadvantaged communities more than the general population, particularly African Americans.

Fauci, who spent the better of his career fighting HIV, explained how the disease affected the LGBTQ people and compared it to what’s happening now.

“During that time, there was extraordinary stigma, particularly against the gay community,” Fauci said at a press conference yesterday, as Pence looked on. “And it was only when the world realized how the gay community responded to this outbreak with incredible courage and dignity and strength and activism — I think that really changed some of the stigma against the gay community, very much so.”

“When you’re in the middle of a crisis like we are now with the coronavirus it really does have ultimately shine a very bright light on some of the real weaknesses and foibles in our society.”
