New York Times Magazine focuses on HIV resurgence among black gay men in US; drastic Trump budget cuts on HIV work


The New York Times Magazine has a booklet-length insert “America’s Hidden H.I.V. Epidemic”, by Linda Villarosa, link.

She asks why to America’s black gay men have the highest rate of H.I.V. infection in the world?
 
She gives a recapitulation of AIDS history from the 1980s, which I have covered many times before.

Chris Johnson has an analysis in the Washington Blade on cuts in HIV programs in Trump’s budget, as “shocking and cruel”.  Ironically, it’s the economically better-off gay men who will realize the seriousness of funding for PrEP and protease inhibitors.
