Gay Black Men and HIV: Looking Beyond Behavior

In time for World AIDS Day, The Atlantic’s Kenyon Farrow examined what’s behind the growing AIDS epidemic among young African-American gay and bisexual men. Farrow reminds us that while Black gay men report higher condom use, they are more likely to live in areas with high HIV prevalence, which means “one slip-up creates a higher probability of infection.” — Kellee Terrell
