H.I.V Infection Rate Skyrocketing for Black Gay Men

This article from the New York Times (free registration required to read) was announced on the Men's Health America mailing list. The story is about a report that H.I.V. infections among young black gay men in large cities is dramatically above the rates for young white men - up to six times as much. The report should expose the need for more aggressive screening and educational programs about H.I.V, and "that programs for black men "must address the stigma of homosexuality which prevents many of these men from identifying themselves as gay and bisexual and may keep them from accessing needed prevention and treatment services.""Source: The New York Times [newspaper]
