Darshan: This is the list of top five LGBTQ leaders on Twitter, who you should follow to learn about COVID 19. Number one, I don't know if they themselves identify as LGBTQ or they see themselves as allies. And I also don't know ... Well, I wouldn't say that you're following them necessarily for the medical information, as much as some of the other information that may become relevant. The first person to follow is Dr. Rachel Levine, who is @SecretaryLevine. She is the Secretary of Health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and she is a transgendered individual and she is leading Pennsylvania's COVID 19 response. The second person to follow is Dr. Ron Holt, and he can be followed @DrRonHolt. He is a psychiatrist who is passionate about spreading awareness and support for the LGBTQ community. The third person to follow is Mark Plondon, and he is interested in social intersectional factors. He is a sexual health and HIV physician. He looks at the health and wellbeing if LGBTQ and other minorities. And you can follow him @markrplondon.

Darshan: The next person to follow is Kevin Imrie. You can follow him out @kimrie. And he is a medical educator, a hematologist and a physician and an LGBTQ advocate. And the last person on my top five LGBTQ leaders on Twitter list is a family physician. She's on various editorial boards. She focuses on digital health and LGBTQ care. Her name's Dr. Natasha Bhuyan, B-H-U-Y-A-N. And you can follow her @NatashaBhuyan Again, I don't know if any of them individually identify as LGBTQ or they may not necessarily identify, but they are leaders in the community and worth following.
