    It gets worse.

    From the Post article:

    "Among its findings: Almost half of those who had connections to the parts of the city with the highest AIDS prevalence and poverty rates said they had overlapping sexual partners within the past 12 months, three in five said they were aware of their own HIV status, and three in 10 said they had used a condom the last time they had sex."

    Three out of five is the same as six out of 10 knowing they had HIV...but only three out of 10 used a condom!?!

    Gay, bisexual men over-represent those living with HIV...

    August 17, 2016 – Gay and bisexual men comprised about 2 percent of the U.S. population in 2013, but they accounted for more than half of all Americans living with HIV, according to new data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
