    Default 1 in 5 gay, bisexual men in US cities has HIV

    Nearly half are unaware of their infection-CDC

    * CDC calls for renewed HIV prevention efforts

    (Adds CDC interview, other comments)

    By Julie Steenhuysen

    CHICAGO, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Nearly one in five gay and bisexual men in 21 major U.S. cities are infected with HIV, and nearly half of them do not know it, U.S. health officials said on Thursday.

    Young men, and especially young black men, are least likely to know if they are infected with HIV, according to a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    "We need to reinvigorate our response to preventing HIV among gay and bisexual men," Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, said in a telephone interview.

    "We can't allow HIV to continue its devastating toll among gay and bisexual men, and in particular, among young black men."
    Disturbing news from the USA.

    interesting and scary stats there texas, reminds me of an article a few years ago in Rolling Stone magazine about "Bug Chasing", whereby they stated that quite a large percentage of homosexual men that contract HIV actually do so on purpose. Not being gay or having any close homosexual friends I can honestly say I have not discussed this with anyone with any authority on the subject matter so I am just retelling an article i read.

    I have tried to find the article but it's not archived on the Rolling Stone site, instead here are links to replies from other sites regarding the article, including MTV:

    MTV here - here
    Media Life Magazine - here
    Salon.com - here

    Let's remind ourselves that straight men & women have unprotected sex very frequently...especially in the UK (teenage pregnancy rates).

    I wonder how many of them do not know that they maybe HIV+?

    GL

    Of the reported 24,296 people diagnosed with HIV in Western Europe in 2008:

    42% probably acquired HIV through heterosexual contact;
    35% were men who had sex with men;
    4% were injecting drug users;
    30% were female;
    and 10% were 15 to 24 years old.

    In this day and age, you're a person could transmit this from anybody, male, female, straight, gay or bisexual.
