While some of you disciples of the Trumpublican tribe continue to wait patiently for the Asshole in Chief to do nothing for the American people, and continue to vote against your own personal interests, I have to give it up to the countless shows like The Resident, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, and a few others for donating medical props from their shows to hospitals, as they work countless hours and struggle to contain COVID-19.
You even have designer Christian Siriano employing his sewing staff to stitch together some masks for medical workers, and Pornhub donating 50,000 masks to New York City medical workers, and free porn to those who are self-quarantined at home.
Pose (which had to stop production for season 3 less than a month into filming their current season) is the latest show to donate hospital props to medical workers on New York City, where the show films.
Here’s what Pose co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed on his Instagram:

On my FX series POSE, one of our regular sets and locations is a hospital where in season 3 (spoiler) Blanca works as an AIDS/hiv counselor. Today we donated all our prop supplies to Mount Sinai hospital to help nurses and doctors battling the Covid outbreak. Let’s all keep giving when and where and how we can. More to come…
Much of the second season featured hospital scenes, with many taking place at St. Vincent’s hospital, which resided in the West Village until it was closed down a few years ago and turned into an apartment complex.
According to Pink News, Murphy donated $50,000 to a relief fund “to help those in the creative industries who have been left without work due to the coronavirus shutdown.” It has been reported that over 125,000 people who worked behind the scenes on some of your favorite shows are currently out of work due to the Rona epidemic. No word on when Pose season 3 will resume production, but let’s hope Miss Rona’s wrath is nipped in the bud before June, when season 3 is expected to premiere.
