(CNN) Organizers have canceled a free concert at New Orleans's upcoming LGBTQ+ festival Southern Decadence due to the threat of monkeypox.The larger six-day festival, September 1-5, will continue as planned, as it always has since 1973 with the exception of when there were hurricanes and the first two years of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The popular event typically attracts about 250,000 people. But organizers of the concert thought that with the rise in monkeypox cases, particularly among gay, bisexual, transgender, nonbinary, and men who have sex with men, it wasn't worth the risk.Monkeypox is spread through close skin to skin contact.

While not a sexually transmitted disease the majority of cases in this particular outbreak in the US have been through sexual contact, skin to skin, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The concert is outdoors, but its big name performers like Deborah Cox, Jennifer Holliday, and the Weather Girls, draw large crowds.It is what organizer Chuck Robinson described as "hot, sweaty, people gathered in a street for blocks 21 deep, people have their shirts off.
