Many gay men might not realize they're HIV positive

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new analysis finds many gay men may not be aware they're HIV positive.

The report from the Centers for Disease Control finds one in five gay and bisexual men living in major U.S. cities is infected with HIV, the virus that leads to AIDS.

Nearly half, 44-percent, were unaware they had the virus.

Younger men and African American gay men were least likely to know whether they were HIV positive.
