Today is National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (Sept. 27)
The fifth annual National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Sept. 27, 2012, is a time for us to reflect on the heavy toll that HIV takes on gay and bisexual men across the country and to recommit to fighting the disease. Men who have sex with men (MSM) represent 2 percent of the U.S. population, yet account for more than half of both new HIV infections each year and Americans living with HIV. Since the beginning of the epidemic, nearly 350,000 gay and bisexual men with AIDS have died, and more than 8,000 still die each year.
