HIV/AIDS and Black, Gay and Bisexual Men

This summer, a report found that Black men who have sex with men (MSM) and are over the age of 30 have an HIV rate two times that of white MSM, and Black MSM younger than 30 have a three times higher rate. A Black AIDS Institute report found that by the age of 40, Black MSM living with HIV is 60 percent.
