September 27, 2016
September 27 marks a day for increasing awareness and understanding of the effect of HIV on gay and bisexual men. In the United States, HIV has affected gay and bisexual men more than any other group of people.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2013, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men made up an estimated 2% of the United States population but 55% of people living with HIV in the United States. If current diagnosis rates continue, 1 in 6 gay and bisexual men will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime.
