percentage of gay men with HIV

Jul 6, 2005

On a list serve, a comment was made that less then 25% of gay men have HIV. Is this close to true?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Since there seems to be an unlimited number of Republican rightwing self-loathing closeted gay politicians being unceremoniously outed by their no-longer secret sexual antics, it's difficult to comment on the actual percentage of gay men, let alone the percentage of gay men with HIV.

A "25%" statistic that I do believe is relevant is that at least 25% of the over 1,000,000 Americans infected with HIV have absolutely no idea they are HIV positive.
