As we’ve reported before, rates of gonorrhea have shot up in recent years. Queer men are among the worst-hit communities.

In 2021, US authorities reported over 700,000 cases of gonorrhea. This represents a 28% increase on five years previously. Almost a third of all cases were in gay and bisexual men.
