It's a Sin A Real-Life Jill Has An Important Message About Monkeypox ...

Its A Sin, a Channel 4 series that starred Russell T Davies, captivated hearts and minds of people throughout the United Kingdom. Jill, the real-life inspiration behind the beloved character, has spoken out about the Monkeypox epidemic in the United Kingdom that is all too familiar.

The Welsh actor said in her new book Love from the Pink Palace: Memories of Love, Loss, and Cabaret Through the AIDS Crisis with PinkNews that she has experienced the same moral judgments as at the height of the epidemic.

She explained that in the 80s about AIDS, certain media like to marginalize people and make them believe that something is wrong with their way of living. It was almost as if there were certain individuals that deserved what they got because they weren't acting as God intended.

On July 23, the World Health Organization declared the Monkeypox epidemic a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Outside of endemic areas (remote areas of Central and West Africa), 99% of cases had occurred in men, 98% of whom have sex with men (MSM).

Jill, a fan-favorite character in Channel 4's Its A Sin, is inspired by Nalder's real-life experiences in London in the 1980s. During this time, she campaigned and fundraised for causes aimed at assisting those affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

You're living in London, which is wonderful, but then, all of a sudden, there's a disease that literally changes everything, according to Gay Times. She would also spend much of her time visiting gay and bisexual men who were diagnosed with AIDS during their final days. You're putting a place together, in a way, of a family member, she said.
