Least wanted: Black gay men

Least wantedMost gay men won’t date black men, so says a new survey in the journal AIDS and Behavior (and many a black man who’s done time in the gay world).

As reported in HIV Plus Magazine, the survey revealed “blacks are deemed the least preferred as sexual partners by men of other ethnicities.”

This prejudging of every black man alive as unacceptable for sexual intimacy “forces black gay men into closely-knit sexual networks that allow HIV to rapidly spread once introduced.”

HIV infection rates are disproportionately high among young black gay men. Now researchers believe one of the reasons is prejudice and racism.
