QAnon Nuts Embrace “Vax Makes You Gay” Claims

Metro Weekly reports:

Followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory are reportedly embracing the idea that the COVID-19 vaccine can make people gay.

It’s a claim previously shared by conservative religious figures, including an ultra-Orthodox rabbi in Israel and an Islamic cleric in Iran, who told their followers not to accept a coronavirus vaccine because those who have it “become homosexuals.”

Shayan Sardarizadeh, a reporter for the BBC, tweeted screenshots this week showing QAnon supporters on messaging app Telegram endorsing the conspiracy theory.
