One in five gay/bisexual men in the 21 U.S. cities hardest hit by AIDS have HIV infections -- and nearly half don't know it, a CDC survey finds.
19% of the men tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
28% of black, 18% of Hispanic, and 16% of white men tested positive for HIV.
44% of the men who tested positive for HIV had been unaware of their infection.
59% of black, 46% of Hispanic, and 26% of white men who tested positive for HIV were unaware of their infection.
63% of the HIV-positive men age 18-29 were unaware of their infection.
Do you think you have a RIGHT to know your partners sexual history? If you don't, you should advise them to at LEAST get tested. It could save a life...
