Just in Time for Pride: New Gay Men's Resource Center on TheBody.com

TheBody.com recently unveiled a new resource center for gay, bi and MSM (men who have sex with men) guys, just in time for the final celebrations of National LGBTQ Pride Month.

The need for all of this information is great. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,

  • MSM account for nearly half of the more than one million people living with HIV in the U.S.
  • MSM comprise more than half of all new HIV infections (an estimated 28,700 people) in the U.S. each year.
  • MSM account for just 4 percent of the U.S. male population aged 13 and older, but the rate of new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the U.S. is more than 44 times that of other men.
  • MSM make up the only risk group in the U.S. in which new HIV infections are increasing. (New infections have declined among both heterosexuals and injection drug users.)

These are all sobering facts, aren’t they? Check out all the online resources, including Basic HIV/AIDS info, discussion board, Q&A with medical experts, blogs by real-world guys dealing with HIV-related issues, and more at TheBody.com.
