720,000 American men having sex with men (MSM) are living with HIV today. At least a quarter-million more have died in the 31 years of the pandemic.
National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD) is September 27, 2012.
NGMHAAD calls on gay men across the United States to remember that the end of the HIV/AIDS epidemic may be in sight, but the epidemic isn’t over — and men who have sex with men are still at high risk. The number of gay men already living with HIV in this country may be as high as 1 in every 8, so we have to protect ourselves. Play safe!
