That Means Straight Brothas’ Too!

Heterosexual Black men are the fifth largest group impacted by HIV in the U.S., says the CDC. In 2010, 2,700 heterosexual Black men were newly diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. This number does not include the 1,100 Black male IV drug users who were diagnosed with HIV that same year. So yes, you need to get tested too!  (Photo: Flint/Corbis)
