Dr. Fauci Says Ease Up On The Grindr

Not that it's any different than other apps but he was asked specifically. Dr. Fauci has become everyone's favorite doctor for his ability to work with President Trump while at the same time maintaining his credibility. Which can be a gargantuan task. As a matter of fact, we can't think of anyone else who's accomplished this amazing feat. That's why it's not surprising that his opinion would matter to the LGBT community. Peter Hamby (a reporter for Vanity Fair) asked Fauci if he could still meet up with the cute guy who tapped him on Grindr? Fauci was cool and didn’t dismiss the idea completely but, he did say that anyone hooking up on any app is potentially putting the health of them and their loved ones at risk. “If you’re looking for a friend, sit in a room and put a mask on, and you know, chat a bit,” he continued. “If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, then that’s your choice regarding a risk.” Watch below to see what dating apps like Grindr are saying in response. #FunnyMoneyRock is a content platform powered by Icon City Entertainment for urban LGBT news and related musical content and events.
