A study shows that the city of Atlanta has among one of the highest concentrations of young black gay men living with HIV in the United States

Research shows that HIV prevalence for the group is running at 12.1% a year. It means that a young black gay man becoming sexually active at the age of 18 in the city has a 60% chance of being HIV positive by the age of 30. The research showed that black men who have sex with men (BMSM) are 3.8 times more likely to acquire HIV compared with their white male counterparts.
